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.

ANIMALS BROUGHT TO LIFE 5 DAY
- Sep 13, 2021 09:30 am

After a year like 2020 we all need to escape our homes and have some fun! Imagine giving yourself the luxury of five days to create art. That is what you will do in this class with award-winning quilter Barbara Yates Beasley. She will teach you a low-tech pattern design technique that, when combined with raw-edged appliqu?, will turn any photograph into a fun and eye-catching quilt. The 5-day workshop will teach you how to see the details and values in your photograph that are needed to create a pattern, a pattern that will look like YOUR subject. You will then be able to choose fabric for a naturalistic art quilt or maybe one that has more fanciful colors. Special attention is paid to creating lifelike eyes that demand attention. You only need to bring your photograph, and a few basic supplies including your sewing machine to the workshop. At the end of the class, you will have your own work of art to hang on the wall. This technique is not limited to pets. If pets are not your area of interest bring a photo of a flower or other object. Think Georgia O?Keeffe size flower. I would not suggest using a human subject for your first project.

Cost: $ 600.00
