Festival of Quilts Workshops
May 23 - 25, 2018
Join Gloria Loughman for two workshops focusing on colour and light!
1-Day Workshop: "Colour is Magic"
Wednesday, May 23, 2018
9am to 4pm | $140.00 +GST
A stress-free class where students have fun experimenting with colour and design. Beginning with structured colour schemes, students will confidently move on to create a simple landscape quilt that features an unusual palette of fabrics. The emphasis will be on colour choice and value, using colours that may never have been seen before in nature but work harmoniously together for a stunning and different effect.
There will be a choice of two patterns so participants can concentrate on their colour scheme and not have to draw out their own. Approx. size: 30 cm x 42 cm.
2-Day Workshop: "Light Up Your Landscape"
Thursday & Friday, May 24th & 25th, 2018
9am to 4pm | $275 +GST
Light is one of the most powerful tools that an artist can use in a composition. Fusing small squares, rectangles or diamonds of fabric, students can build up a landscape background that is full of light, contrasts and drama. In this class, design principles including perspective and focal point will be outlined and a variety of colour schemes will be displayed and discussed. Participants will then design their own wall hanging working from a photos, sketch or picture. Fusing, invisible machine appliqué, free motion stitching and quilting techniques will be included. This workshop is suitable for new and experienced quilters, with patterns and hand dyed and painted fabrics available in class.
