Flower Collage
Art Quilt Workshop with Susan Brubaker Knapp

Sat, May 4, 2024 10:00am - 4:30pm

Description

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: 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.

Class Fee: $45.00 Presentor: Susan Brubaker Knapp

Instructor Information:(Information taken from the Jacqueline de JOnge BeColorful Website Website)
My quilting life began in 1978 when I saw a magazine picture of a Log Cabin-pattern quilt. Right away I had to try my hand at this fascinating work - my sister still has the resulting pink Log Cabin. Since then I have taught myself and tried over the years to reach a level of perfection, not to show off, but because I love the beauty I can achieve through my designs. My goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with beauty and color.

I have always been creative, but quilting has hooked me. To be able to work well at something you love is a miracle and a gift from God. I started my BeColourful pattern line in the Netherlands in 2004. BeColourful is now a family owned and operated business in the United States since 2007. ?My quilts have been displayed worldwide and have won international awards. They are based on traditional designs but with a contemporary and colorful twist. In 2004 at the encouragement of my father I entered the Open European Quilt Championship and won the Color Trophy. Since that year I have lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Interviews have been published in several magazines, and in 2011 I was profiled and featured on the Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson online Quilt Show. I think my passion for quilting helps make me an encouraging and personable teacher. I love to share my enthusiasm for my designs with others and to bring them to a different and higher level where they can find their own artistic skills. ?

I also show my students that quilts that may seem difficult in a picture are actually not that hard after all. ?

After living in Delft for more than 50 years, I moved to the other side of the country in September 2020 to live closer to my family. Family has always been very important to me and that made it easy for me to leave the busy west of the country behind and make a new start in a new hometown.
