Abstracting From Nature
This workshop is for quilters of all levels.
Nature is an endless source of inspiration. In this class we will examine a wide variety of artists interpretations of nature before beginning to manipulate natural forms ourselves. Through a series of exercises we will experiment with abstraction and exaggeration to capture the essence and energy of your favorite flora and achieve dramatic visual effects. We will then translate these ideas into fabric in a 5 day workshop.
Drawing skills are not needed but participants should have a strong interest in developing their own design language and unique visual symbols.
This class is especially beneficial for the drawing impaired and the tragically literal!
