Thelma Moyer

October 12, 2023

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

In any art endeavor, the artist needs to have an understanding of their medium.  As quilters our medium is fabric so it is important to learn how to use it. 
Our informal class will continue and expand on the information in the trunk/show/lecture with the emphasis on landscape construction.  We will play with strips of fabric to learn to SEE the colors and how they create depth, season, feelings, etc.
We will use that knowledge to build one or more small landscapes, depending on time.
The emphasis will be on learning and not as much on creating a masterpiece.  I would rather have you leave with the tools and knowledge to be able to look at a photo and create your own.  We will explore different methods of construction.
No matter the medium, your eye is your most important tool but it needs some training.

Hosted by Missoula Quilters' Guild at A Clean Stitch

Class Size Limited to 12
