This workshop is for fiber artists passionate about the natural world. Melody teaches the myriad strategies and techniques she employs in her landscape quilts. Students learn to see the art of the land: light, color, line, shape, texture, and movement. The class studies the work of other landscape artists, explores various ways to represent nature, and learns to work with reference photos. By exploring new methods of working in layers using fused construction methods, participants create and discuss several small studies and 1-2 landscape quilts.
Melody Randol’s quilt, Moored, received the most votes for the Viewer’s Choice Award in the juried biennial exhibition, Breakout: Quilt Visions 2016. Moored was created from a photograph Melody captured during her trip to Japan after winning the Quilts Japan Award in Quilt Visions 2014.
Moored was created with the artist’s own hand dyed, painted, screen-printed and discharged cotton, silk, and rayon. It was machine quilted over layered raw edge appliqué.
Held at Rosie’s Calico Cupboard classroom, Monday-Friday 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. $600
