Workshop Opportunity from SAQA member Susie Monday

SEPTEMBER 25-27, 2009

In this workshop, start with simple sketches and doodles and end the weekend with an arsenal of new surface design tricks and tools.
Explore doodles and scribbles as sources of uniques and personal imagery that will give your art quilts, wearable art, or mixed media work personal depth and layers of meaning.
Take a favorite symbol -- for example a heart, star, spiral, circle -- and by taking it (and yourself) through a series of creative generative exercises, you’ll make something new and different to incorporate into your design, composition and surface design. Tools and techniques explored include paper lamination on fabric, large scale “mark-making” rollers and monoprinting. There is an optional Friday night potluck and critique session.
The first four people to sign up and pay $150 before Sept. 20 for my September workshop, will receive a certificate for 1/2 price off on the next one they attend.

Hope you can make it! This is going to be a really fun weekend -- with an option to attend the Cajun Festival on Saturday night if we want to -- the gumbo is supposed to be fabulous. If the group doesn't want that adventure, we'll stay put and I'll make the gumbo!

Let me know as soon as possible if you are interested since this is only open to the first 4 people who respond.
