Speed Date with Improv - Workshop with Krista Hennebury
Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild is excited to announce an upcoming workshop with Krista Hennebury!
Krista blogs at Poppyprint Creates and her book Make It, Take It was published by Martingale in January 2015. Krista has long been a popular teacher within VMQG and other guilds in the lower mainland, but in the last few years quilters outside of the area have been able to learn from her as well, as she traveled to Alaska, Inuvik (NWT) and Sweden (and more!) to teach.
This workshop is especially exciting because it’s brand new. Read below for a description of the workshop, and how to sign up!
Speed Date with Improv is a face-paced one day workshop for the improv-curious quilter who’s ready to let go and work without stressing, obsessing or second guessing!
In the morning we’ll work our way through several fun improv piecing techniques; Krista will demo each technique, then you’ll return to your cutting mat and machine to try it out for yourself before the bell rings for your next improv demo-date. Later in the afternoon, we’ll play on the design wall, searching for serendipitous intersections of line and shape in a final layout. You’ll learn how to jigsaw your piecing together into a pleasing abstract composition that will serve as a mini-improv sampler reference for future work.
Students are encouraged to work with solids and limit their fabric palette to black, white plus one colour for high contrast visual impact and definition of line and shape. Discussion will also cover the work of improv master quilters and recommended resources for further exploration of technique.
When: Sunday, September 24th, 2017
Cost: $55 for members, $60 for non-members
Sign ups are open to members at this time, the class will be open for non-members after our May meeting (if spaces are still available)
