Spirals Boot Camp

RaNeaMerrvill Boot Camp.jpgIn the workshop on May 22, we will learn to design 4 different types of blocks and we will sew two individual blocks.  The 2 spirals we do in the morning (Nesting and Baravelle) have one construction technique and the 2 spirals we do in the afternoon (Point-to-Point and Pinwheel) have a different construction technique, so we sew one spiral of each construction technique.  There is not a finished project, since the objective of the class is to teach techniques  which students can then incorporate into their own design.  The 2 blocks can be used in any project they choose to use them.  Renae will provide a pattern for hot pads if students want to finish the blocks that way.  There is a materials fee of $10.

Trunk Show – Fiber Arts

Andrea Brokenshire


Andrea Brokenshire (AMB Fiber Art and Design) is a national and international award winning quilt artist and instructor from Round Rock, Texas. In 1998 she was talked into making a quilt and found this form of art a perfect outlet of creative expression. Andrea quickly realized that her passion was appliqué. She specializes in appliquéd botanical quilts. As a former biologist, Andrea draws her inspiration from the natural world.

Painting on Silk


The project size is 11” x 17” inches.  Andrea will go over how to prime the silk for paint (she has done this ahead of time because of time constraints), and how to create a pattern from photographs.  Then Andrea will go over her painting techniques on how to apply the color in layers to create luminosity and depth.  The rest of the time will be  spent painting.
