Light Up Your Landscape by Gloria Loughman via Zoom
May 1, 2022 4 - 7pm Eastern Daylight Time
May 15, 2022 4 - 7pm Eastern Daylight Time
Light is one of the most powerful tools that an artist can use in a composition. Fusing small squares, rectangles or diamonds of fabric, students can build up a landscape background that is full of light, contrasts and drama. In this class, design principles including perspective and focal point will be outlined and a variety of colour schemes will be displayed and discussed. Participants will then design their own wall hanging working from a photos, sketch or picture. Fusing, invisible machine appliqué, free motion stitching and quilting techniques will be included. This workshop is suitable for new and experienced quilters with patterns provided.
Guests are welcome to attend this workshop.
Improv Blocks by Sheila Frampton Cooper via Zoom
February 5, 2022 1 - 4pm Eastern Time
February 26, 2022 1 - 4pm Eastern Time
Students will create improv blocks to be used in a small or large piece. The blocks may vary in size and shape and can be very complex or quite simple. This is a great class for becoming comfortable with the process of creating without an initial plan, while at the same time, retaining a little structure. Sheila will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing.
