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 and illustrated in her new book 1000 Quilt Inspirations. 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 quilters, evaluating their work and suggesting possible directions for developing each quilt. She will also teach the basics of monotype printing, stamp printing, and photo transfer, as well as cyanotype on fabric if we have a sunny day. The final morning will consist of critiques, with participants sharing and discussing their works in progress.
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 the 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.
Quilters should bring materials to begin a new quilt top, 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. Check-in is 3-5pm Sunday, September 25, 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. The class will be held in the Great Room of the new Art Space on campus.
