Class Description

Design Bootcamp – Day 1 & 2
Learn the basics of color, composition, proportion and scale in this two-day class.  You’ll see color in a new way, how fabrics interact and how the various components of design can contribute to a well-executed finished quilt. The class will focus on mastering the concepts of design through a variety of explorations as opposed to making a finished piece. Student are also welcome to bring unfinished work for feedback.

From Idea to Quilt – Days 3-5
You have an idea for an original quilt but you need to figure out the details. What size are the pieces? Does the palette need some work? How are you going to quilt it? How would different binding fabrics change the look of the final quilt? This class is designed to coach you through the process of making an original quilt. Come with the desire to try new colors, techniques and perspectives. Bring a sketchbook and ideas.

5 Day Class size is limited to 12 students.
