Independent Art Quilt Workshop
February 28 - March 4, 2016
(Sunday - Friday)
with Sandra Sider
This workshop is based on the principles of art and design developed in Sandra’s critique workshops and written about in the volumes of her Studio Quilt monograph series. Limited to a maximum of twelve participants, the workshop will allow Sandra to spend considerable amounts of time each day working one-on-one with participants, evaluating their work and suggesting possible directions for developing each quilt. The final day will consist of critiques, with participants sharing and discussing their works in progress.
Quilters should bring a work in progress or materials to begin a new quilt, their sewing supplies and tools, a sewing machine and an iron. Class is suitable for all levels of quilters, but excellent sewing skills and expertise with one's sewing machine is a must.
For more than ten years Sandra Sider has been known for her critique workshops benefitting quilt artists. She has also taught studio classes in contemporary quilt art, most recently at the Peters Valley School of Craft, and has been a quilt artist and critic since the late 1970s, with works in several public collections.
Sandra is Curator, Texas Quilt Museum, past president of Studio Art Quilt Association, and author of the blog "Textile News," the recently published "1000 Quilt Inspirations: Colorful and Creative Designs for Traditional, Modern, and Art Quilts" as well as articles in many quilt publications.
Check in is 3-5pm Sunday, February 28, 2016. Dinner is served from 6-7pm, and then we will begin the evening program. The class ends with lunch on Friday, and you are welcome to enjoy the premises through the afternoon.
