Quilting - Improvisational Abstract with Mixed Media

Course Code: ARTS2302

This is an extremely creatively freeing course. Discover how shapes, angles, bold colours, straight lines, poems, movies, and even folklore will aid you in creating abstract quilts that stretch the imagination and tell a new story. Document your ideas in a journal for the creation of future quilts. The intent is that, upon completion of the course, you will have at least three finished quilts and enough tools to create many future improvisational abstract pieces. Fabric, paint, thread, crayons, folding techniques, thread techniques, and anything you can sew down with a needle or sewing machine will be explored. Learn to work as a group as well as on your own to brainstorm themes as a starting point to a new way of seeing things. Create abstract quilts that will invite conversation and wonder. You will be required to bring a familiar and reliable sewing machine in good working order.
