Is everyone loving Project Runway this season as much as I am? And who wouldn't love a challenge where you're set loose in a chocolate store for 5 minutes??
I've been teaching a workshop called Project Patchwork for the last couple of years that is the art quilter/textile artist's answer to the fun on PR. This summer I'll be teaching it at A Quilter's Affair in Sisters, Oregon. These are the workshops that run the week before the big outdoor quilt show in Sisters. The workshop is offered twice on two different days, with different challenges each day. If you'd like a peek at the results from one of the previous classes, click here. We're going to have a blast!
I'll also be teaching workshops there on Discovering Found Objects, working with paper, wire, metal, ephemera, etc, and on Outer Limits - really, really unusual edge finishing techniques for art quilts. That workshop covers a minimum of 20 (twenty!) different edges, everything from beads to yarn to paper to plastic and lots of variations on fabric binding.
For more Project Runway fun, check out the Project Rungay blog. Those boys nail it every time. It's nearly as much fun as the show!
And now that I've photographed that chocolate I can eat it...
