Class Description

Sue Benner – Sewing The Land
July 18th – 22nd, 2017
5 days, intermediate to advanced

Sue began making landscape images from raw edges, selvedges, and other odds and ends from scrap bags. From there she went on to add other techniques and develop a body of work inspired by wetlands in her childhood-home state, Wisconsin.

In this workshop each participant creates two or three landscape quilts along with several small studies. The class studies different approaches to representing landscape, including those of other artists in a variety of media. Sue then shows students how to look at a landscape, analyze it, and translate it to fabric using a variety of fused construction methods. She also covers fusible basics, working with non-traditional fabrics, quilting and binding the fused quilt. (Previous students have told Sue that this changed the way they saw the land.)
