Susan will share her passion and encourage participants to draw your next quilt.
Freehand draw and paint each day. On paper, then on cloth each day. Your personal style will be whatever comes out of you naturally, and we will all celebrate it and you, for your bravery and creativity! That is all inside of you, waiting to come out now. It may have been waiting a long time, but if you take this class, your natural creativity will be more than happy to come out now! Everyone is meant to draw.
Each day of this 3 day workshop will begin with a morning of drawing and an afternoon learning techniques to translate your creativity to fabric.

Students will create units that are cut from long strips and then sewn together and remade in a Seminole pattern. The strips can be very colorful and are suitable to be used in a small quilt, wall hanging, or as accent to brighten up a garment. American Indians originally developed the Seminole technique. Please note: this class will focus on Seminole techniques, as opposed to Seminole piecing.
Registration begins February 3, 2019

Students will create a vest or small wall quilt that will "speak" for them. Using a traditional or a contemporary pattern each student will be encouraged to create a one of a kind work that is reflective of the creator's personality or ethnicity or expresses a social or political sentiment and/or express a sense of humor. A variety of construction and embellishment techniques will be explored. Students will be encouraged to mix contrasting prints, explore ethnic fabrics, colors and textures and to add buttons, ribbons, beads or whatever is necessary to make the quilt into a personal statement.
