Fibre Arts Week in Sorrento
Kathy Kinsella's fibre art landscape of Shuswap Lake
I've been asked to post a little note about the upcoming Fibre Art Week in Sorrento, BC - a lovely little community on Shuswap Lake: Sorrento Centre will be offering three separate workshops in April to encourage quilters and fibre artists alike to stretch their boundaries and explore some wonderful possibilities.
Exploring Curves in Quilt Designs will be taught by Dianne Jansson, an internationally recognized quilt instructor from Pritchard, BC. Dianne will teach various methods to successfully sew curves in your quilts.
Kathy Kinsella will offer a workshop on fibre art landscapes. This course will help the participants to construct a landscape art quilt from fabric, and use a variety of surface design techniques to provide added interest in the features. The artwork included in this post was created by Kathy and is a view of Shuswap Lake from her home in Blind Bay. Her blog is here where she has some lovely items for sale.
Marg Janick-Grayston is a United Church minister and a facilitator of silk painting retreats in Saskatchewan, and she will combine both meditation and the creative process of silk painting in this course.
Fibre Art Week will be held April 11-17 in Sorrento Centre where accommodation and meals are also available for registrants who would like to retreat into the world of fibre art. Call 250-675-2421 for more information or registration.
