Greetings to you all...
I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be teaching for 3 days, November 25, 26 and 27, 2016, at ART QUILT ROMA. I will also be part of fantastic group of artists exhibiting their work at L'ARTE MORBIDA. Everything is at the same location, which is in the center of Rome.
I will be teaching three different classes:
Lines and Curves (All Levels)
Students will combine thick and thin lines with curved pieces and assemble the quilt top in rows. I will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing.
Surprise Log Cabin (All Levels)
Students will use the various color families to assemble pieces that will be cut up and restructured. The result will not necessarily resemble a Log Cabin pattern, but this will be the method of construction. The blocks may vary in size or be uniform. The emphasis will be on scale and value.
Quiet With a Pop (Intermediate)
Using predominately neutral, quiet colors as the background, students will create a focal point with bold color and extend that color through the piece in a balanced manner. I will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing.
I am now teaching one day classes that focus on one method of approaching the construction of your piece. In the past, when I teach 4 or 5-day classes, I give the students various options and they go in different directions. I will still continue to teach in this way, however I would like to give students a little more structure when I'm with them only one day. For this workshop, however, since I'll be teaching 3 days, it's a good opportunity to take all three classes and have more time with me so I may assist and support students as they explore this way of working.
So... If any of my U.S. friends are feeling adventurous and spontaneous, this will be a lot of fun!
The website is in Italian of course, but if you have any interest, please feel free to contact me and I will give you more info.
