Maria Shell – BLOW IT UP!
Saturday, June 26, 2021 from 10 am – 4:30 pm
(includes 1/2 hour lunch break)
$50/workshop + $1.50 Paypal Fee
Using the traditional quilt block or other set of compositional lines (bridge, building, etc…) as your starting point we will enlarge and magnify the lines of the structure and use them as our skeleton for building a pieced composition. From there we will explore a variety of ways to create texture, pattern, and repetition in that space.
