Unleash your inner artist and make a quilt that no one else could make as you develop a personal design with your own sense of time and place. Emphasis will be on COLOR and VALUE, LINE, SHAPE and TEXTURE to express your own journey to where you are now in your life. Choose a personal symbol, motif and color to represent your sense of space, time and mood and build a stunning composition using a visual path, and pattern repeat without predictability. Learn to edit, select and simplify to create mystery, drama, richness and security in your work. Whatever you choose to depict, I will provide guidance as you create a successful contemporary visual composition that says "This is me here now!"

This class is full, but you may still request to be added to the waiting list.

Cynthia Corbin

Composing Composition

September 26 –30, 2016

From Cynthia: I am a quiltmaker. Over the years I have slopped dye onto fabric and discovered I love the accident and the unexpected. I have stitched and stitched with machine, by hand, and with mega machine—my longarm, Millie—and have discovered that I love the errant line, the intuitive following of a muscle memory. In looking for my voice, I have discovered a boundless trove of experiences that has given me the quiet subject matter I explore.

I like being a quiltmaker. There is comfort in the doing. There is understanding in the doing. And I love the feeling of not knowing “how” I am going to do it, but being eager to jump in and find out. All the doors are open to me, ready to explore.

For every rule about good composition, someone comes along and breaks that rule, and does it well. That is ART. That is the evolution of ART.
 Discover your secret recipe, the way you arrange the stuff that interests you. Doing that in a mindful/intuitive/sensitive way is the magic, and the hard work. Experiment, explore, make messes, find what works, find what certainly doesn’t, break rules. Cynthia will help you discover and use those ideas you are keeping locked in.
Each day in class, there will be a new set of studies to explore. You may work in whatever style interests you, and in whatever techniques you choose. From landscapes to figurative, abstract to realism, and the spaces in between, there is common ground, and a world to explore.

This class is full, but you may still request to be added to the waiting list.

Promises and Possibilities
at FivePine Lodge & Conference Center
$450

5-day workshop (includes lunches)
Monday - Friday, September 25 - 29, 2017
9-4 pm

Take an in-depth look at the arrangement and organization of visual elements that make a successful composition or design.  Study the raw elements of design, and see how they can be put to use in the process of quiltmaking. The class will begin with interactive discussion around the notion that the basic design elements are used in all design  universally. Using slides and other visual material, we will study the purposes and different types of design and the process of design before looking closely at the elements of design, namely, line, mark, texture, shape, and color.

Discover the design and color world! Open up while composing quilts or fabric collages with layers of luscious silk organza and crisp cotton organdy. We will begin by producing a gem-like palette of translucent fabric with water-based paints and then proceed to the design wall, where new colors and shapes will emerge as the translucent fabrics are layered. We will also produce a technique sampler notebook as we experiment with traditional Korean bojagi, tucks, and other machine and hand-sewn seams to explore the design possibilities different finished and raw edges provide. Design options will expand with discussions of ways to incorporate surface stitchery, printed imagery, and opaque fabrics into your fabric compositions.
