This is an in-person workshop.

Over the course of the last 25 years, MJ Kinman's quilts have taught her ways to help them sparkle and glow. They’ve shown her the power of value contrast, saturation contrast, asymmetry, and transparency.

In her new workshop Color Play: Beyond Color Theory, she'll share what she has learned about how to add sparkle and radiance to your quilt designs. No matter your design inspiration – whether it be landscapes, flowers, portraits, animals, abstracts, or gems – these concepts translate to all types of work. This class encourages experimentation in an environment of joyful exploration and play. When it comes to color there are no wrong answers! We all see color differently. Different things make our heart sing. And MJ will give you tools to make that happen. Using strips of solid fabrics in a rainbow of colors, values, and saturation, you’ll create “color windows”, 12” blocks of concentric squares that showcase these concepts. By the end of your time together, you’ll have a variety of blocks to begin a quilt top in the style of iconic artist and professor Josef Albers’ series 'Homage to the Square.'

Registration Opens: April 10, 2022
