This class will be upstairs since you will be working with dye and paint! Wear good walking shoes, you will be up and down a lot! Denises Art Quilt Design Intensive five day workshop focuses on quilt composition, fabric painting, quilt top texturing, and the comparative effects, benefits, and use. basically, the what, why, when, and how of alternative quilt construction and finishing techniques. The first two days are dedicated to fabric painting using Seta transparent paints, how best to mix, apply, and layer the paint and how to create and use resists and how to cause (and control) layer by layer differential paint absorption, diffusion, blending, patterning, and mottling. Two full days of hands on painting ensures plenty of time for guided experimentation and techniques exploration, plus each participant completes the two days with a collection of their own highly textured fabric in the colors and textures that they themselves have selected to bring depth and complexity to their art quilt projects. The following three days focus on construction techniques and best practices regardomg turned edge applique, raw edge applique, reverse applique, insetting, free form strip piecing, couching, and quilt finishing. A key focus is on reliably (and replicably) creating unique, yet predictable, effects and textures. See: https://www.tlva.fr/le-journal/22-09-2017/1484 for French TV's excellent five minute video segment (starting at 2:05) on Denise's recent Seminar Post Carrefour (Alsace, France) Art Quilt Design Intensive ?Master Class? (filmed during Day Two Fabric Painting). It is in French, of course, but somehow that makes it all the more fun. Throughout the five days an additional emphasis includes Working with Photographs. Each student is asked to bring an enlarged photo (or large sketch) to act as a generalized quilt or project template to help focus and personalize their fabric painting and construction techniques training.
