Playing with color Value: lecture about how I use color value to create my quilts and designs. How Color value can be a key design element.

 

Friends of Colors: In this lecture we will talk about color theory and how we can create a color palette following 4 simple steps.

2-3 hours workshop

Organic shapes: In this class I will teach you how to make curved shapes with your sewing machine! I explain step by step, in detail, how to make these beautiful shapes, which will give you the possibility to freely create shapes on your quilts! It is not Appliqué. In addition, I will show you 3 variants of these forms (one form on top of another, one form next to another and one form within another) and I will give you ideas to inspire you in your next creations!

EPP + Curves + Transparency effect : In this workshop I will teach you how to use the EPP technique for any design you want to create. We will use this traditional technique in a more versatile and free way, opening the possibility of use infinitely. We will play with color and transparency effect to make it even more entertaining. I invite you to join and discover how to use EPP with any design and shape! In this class we will sew by hand, not with sewing machine.

Curves and transparencies: In this workshop the assistant  will make a mini quilt top, where we will design it from scratch. Then we will talk about Color Theory and how we can create a Transparency effect with color and fabrics.I will teach you how to cut fabrics with complex shapes and to join these curved shapes by machine.

Playing with color value: In this workshop you will learn to play with color value in order to design your own quilts. First we will design a block, which will be the one we will use in our design. Then I will teach you different strategies on how to use the value as a design variable. Finally, I will teach you to plan and organize the creation of your quilt, based on your design.This is not a sewing class, it is a design class. I will give you prior to the class, the material that we will use during the class. It is necessary to have colored pencils.
