Flower Collage
Art Quilt Workshop with Susan Brubaker Knapp

This is an improvisational raw-edge collage class. Students work from photos of real flowers, create their own drawings based on abstractions of them, and then cut out pieces without patterns. They arrange the pieces, tack them down on the background with diluted school glue, and then free motion quilt the piece. An easy, fun, no-worries class. A sewing machine with a free-motion foot and extended work surface required.

Class Fee: $165.00 Instructor: Susan Brubaker Knapp

Instructor Information: (Information taken from Susan's Website)
I am an artist, author, photographer, teacher, and host of “Quilting Arts TV.” I started out as a traditional quilter, and still love hand quilting and needleturn appliqué, but I also embrace art quilting and innovative machine techniques. I started making art quilts in 2005. … I am an artist who works in fabric and thread. I find great joy in creating works that draw people closer and invite them to savor color, texture and form.



"The Artist in You"
Presentation by Susan Brubaker Knapp

Fri, May 10, 2024 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Description

The Artist in You is a one-hour digital slide show and trunk show. I describe my personal journey from that of a traditional quilter to an artist who makes both traditional quilts and art quilts. I start with a digital slideshow, which shows my work and some of the techniques I use. The focus is on ways for traditional quilters to become more creative by embracing their own “inner artist.” It is my goal to inspire and encourage quilters to try making an art quilt for several reasons: to challenge themselves, to unleash their innate creativity, to learn new techniques, to discover things about themselves through art, and to share their view of the world with others. There will be an opportunity to view quilts and ask questions.
