Upcoming Art Workshops by Deborah Fell

    • Beginning Design Workshop
    • Postcards from the Edge
    • Southern Illinois Art Workshop, Inc

      Smithboro, IL
    • 618-749-5256
    • sillartwkshop@gmail.com
    • Class Description:  You know how normal people pick up the garbage from a sewing session & throw it away? This workshop is not for those people! The goal of this workshop is to create smaller size art quilt studies using ‘remnants’ & ‘pieces’ of fabric and found objects. Using your own personal stash of tiny fabric pieces you might throw away, snippets, cording, heavy paper, unusual fabrics, an old sock, a sleeve from a sweater, citrus bags…get creative! Establish a plastic bin of goodies to choose from. The more garbage you have, the more choices you will have for design options. Another idea is to bring quilts or other finished pieces & cut them up. ‘Garbage’ will be assembled, collaged & finished into postcard size art quilts while considering basic design elements of art. This is a great beginning class to help you find your design voice.
  • June 2 & 3, 2012
    • Business Aspect of Art
    • Ready to try to make some money with your art? This is a good starting place. This workshop will help you with basic concepts that will help you determine if establishing a business is the direction you want to take.

    • The Quilt Surface Design Symposium has been critical to the non-traditional quilt movement in providing education for all those interested in exploring their own potential in the medium.

      This is a great beginning class to help you find your design voice. The goal of this workshop is to create smaller size art quilt studies using ‘remnants’ and ‘pieces’ of fabric and found objects. Using your own stash of tiny fabric pieces – snippets, cording, heavy paper, unusual fabrics, an old sock, a sweater sleeve, citrus bags or fat quarters that relate somehow – this will be the base of your design. Fabric will be assembled, layered, collaged and finished into small, postcard size art quilts while considering basic design elements of art.

    • Free Form Piecing—Make a Quilt Top with no Pattern!
    • Mendocino Art Center, Mendocino, California
    • http://www.mendocinoartcenter.org/Summer12/Fell3.html
    • Workshop Description
      Have you ever wanted to make a quilt to snuggle under but did not want to be tied down to rigid rules, measuring and perfect points? If the answer is yes, then this would be a wonderful workshop for you! The goal is to make a “stress free,” creative quilt top. Participants will make a laptop size quilt top using the free form piecing method. A pattern is not used but color and compositional elements are considered to make a successful, fun and functional quilt top.
