Finding Your Voice

Workshop Description:
You are unique and individual! Discover your own personal style, embrace it, and learn how to incorporate it into your creating original work that reflects who you are and what you love. This is a design oriented course that could be used in any creative endeavor, not just quilt design!

In a step by step process, you will find your natural sense of style and design, and your own true voice will emerge. We will use this as a platform to create a personal Design Journal. Then with individual consultations, use what you have learned about yourself to create original quilt designs for future projects.

By the end of the workshop, you will:
Know and embrace your own unique sense of style and design.
Use your Design Journal to inspire future projects that speak to your heart.
Begin the first of many new projects, celebrating your newfound voice in quilting!

Student Supply List:

Students will be asked to do a little “homework” ahead of class.

Start an file folder or envelope filled with the following items. If you are traveling and space is limited, you can opt for photos on your phone or using a Pinterest

Board for the bulk of this. Bring a few paper copies to use in your Design Journal. I will also provide magazines for inspiration.

Photograph and print out of some of your favorite personal items in your home. These could be photos of a favorite chair or pillow, a coffee mug, a favorite room or even an article of clothing.

Begin collecting images of what attracts you - what catches your eye. Tear pages from magazines and catalogs. Photocopy images from books on art, cooking, gardening, travel or whatever you love. If you love the color palette of the latest Anthropologie catalog, bring the whole thing! Think about color, shape, line and texture. What do you gravitate to?

Art supplies -
11x14” artists’ sketch book to use as a Design Journal.
Pencils, Black fine point felt tip pen, colored markers or colored pencils if you have them.
Graph paper
Glue stick

Remember this is your chance to explore what you are all about!!!
The effort you put into the homework, will make the workshop more productive!
