I'm really excited to announce that I'll be holding another local workshop, and one that just happens to be one of my favorite classes to teach. My Improv Linework and Design workshop will take place on Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 10-5 at the Front Street Building in Dayton, Ohio. If you participated in my last local workshop, back in April of 2015, it's at the same building, although we will be meeting in a different room.
In this workshop, you will learn how to create improvisationally pieced blocks that are a study in linework and the formation of secondary patterns. Using solid fabrics in a range of values and colors, you will create a modern take on traditional string blocks using an intuitive creative process. An added benefit of this technique is that it produces completely unique, one of a kind blocks with a strong graphic quality, and I will discuss how fabric placement and color choices affect the design of the block. Students will finish the class with a number of completed blocks that can be used in small patchwork projects or as the beginning of a larger quilt.
Early bird pricing for the workshop is $125 per person, and includes all-day instruction, a boxed lunch, snacks and drinks. After January 1, the price for the workshop will be $150.
We will be working in the Divisible project space at the Front Street Building, an alternative gallery that my husband runs. I'll be displaying some of my recent work there during January, so you will be also be able to see the show if you can join us for the workshop, too. More info on that coming soon!
To reserve a spot, please purchase a ticket for the workshop here in my shop. Additional information will be sent to you once you sign up, but if you have any questions about the workshop, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you can join us!
In case of inclement weather, the workshop will be held on January 28, 2017.
