Textiles – Spring Short Session
April 28 – May 4, 2024 (4 studio days)
This quilting workshop will encourage students to use their intuition rather than planning and making a quilt with predetermined patterns and precise cutting. We’ll study our fabrics, noting their colors and textures, and consider potential arrangements. During the process of piecing, students will divide, add, split, shift, flip, and turn their compositions into new designs. The broken patterns and irregular symmetries of these intuitive geometries will produce quilts that are full of color, texture, and most of all, rhythm. Given the brevity of the session, students may want to create a wall hanging rather than a bed-sized quilt. All levels. Upper textiles studio. This workshop takes place in a third-floor walk-up studio that has partial access by a stair lift.
