Textiles Spring One-Week Session Three
March 11 – May 4
Rather than plan and execute a quilt with precise cutting and predetermined patterns, students in this workshop will use their intuition. We’ll study our fabrics, noting their colors and textures, and consider potential arrangements. During the process of piecing, participants will be encouraged to 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. All levels. NOTE: Textiles workshops are taught in walk-up studios accessible by a stair lift. Code S01TA
