In talking with new members of my art quilt guilds, I realized that some are really new to art quilting. They are intimidated with the work shown by the more experienced members. Unsure of how to move forward and develop skills, they become overwhelmed and do not continue attending. This is a shame for the individual, as well as the club.
Generally quilt club members are very willing to share skills and ideas, but newer folks don’t know what questions to ask.
I have developed a class that introduces concepts around artistic and creative quilts, explores materials and techniques, introduces elements and principles of design. and encourages students to explore their interests. The focus will be on inspiration, experimentation, and moving out of a personal comfort zone into a new creative space.
It is a place to start.
