Abstracting from Nature

quilt with patterns of abstract plant elements

Nature is an endless source of inspiration. In this class, we will examine a wide variety of artists’ interpretations of nature before beginning to manipulate natural forms ourselves. Through a series of exercises, we will experiment with abstraction and exaggeration to capture the essence and energy of your favorite flora and achieve dramatic visual effects. We will then translate these ideas into fabric in the 3-day workshop. Sewing machine is required.

It will also supply you with a collection of unique designs to apply to your surface design or fiber art. Sewing machine not required.
