September Art Quilt Workshop in New York with Dr. Sandra Sider

Dr. Sandra Sider, Curator of the Texas Quilt Museum, is holding a workshop in Stony Point, New York (about 1 hour drive north of Manhattan).

Creativity Workshop: Art Quilt Inspirations

September 25-29, 2016 (Sunday - Friday)

This workshop is based on the principles of art and design developed in Sandra Sider’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.

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.

Tuition for the week is $500. There is also a materials fee of $40. Total cost is dependent on the lodging selected, from $450 to $775. It does include all meals.
