Contemporary Art Quilts


Art Quilts

Design and make a small contemporary art quilt using fabric scraps and larger pieces. Learn basic quilting techniques and then expand into areas where the quilt becomes art, exploring what makes good design, shape and color composition, and finally touching on surface elements and dimensionality. Finish with new ideas, techniques and inspiration to continue your own work. All levels; new and returning students welcome. Limit 6 students
