W1 – Inspiring Classics

The aim of this class is to create your own unique decorative surface by exploring the three- dimensional “open window” motif. Participants will learn design principles by combining “the window” with various views through it. Through the creative approach to such classical techniques as cutting, folding, pleating at least 3-4 different “views” will be made. Additionally, the students will receive guidelines on several finishing options how to incorporate “the window” in the composition of the artwork. This piece may also further function as an idea or a part for a bigger quilt.

Lecturer: Elina Lusis-Grinberga (Latvia)

W4 – Unique Gift Creations

The aim of this class is to create small unique art pieces that can serve various purposes – miniature textile art piece, one of a kind gift card or a personal bookmark. While exploring the diverse possibilities of a collage, a considerable emphasis will be put on learning the composition and stitch design. By experimenting with different fabrics and combinations of techniques the participants will create several original art pieces. The students will also learn how to apply the machine-embroidered lace as a part of the design to incorporate lightness and transparency into artwork. No specific amounts of fabric are required - this is a great way to use all the fabric scraps! The more the surface is re-worked and transformed, the more playful and interesting the work becomes. This course will lead to rangy opportunities to improvise and will show you how quickly and easily you can develop your own style.

W5 – Pojagi 1

The first one (white and blue) is 20 x 20 cm: this workshop is very easy and interesting for discovering the technique. Participants will discover this wonderful ancestral Korean art and create a small pojagi, learning two kinds of techniques. Of course, each participant can bring their own fabric. Most of the time I propose a kit (6 euros) with 50 x 50 cm white organdy and 15 x 50 cm dyed organdy. Of course, it is voluntary but with this fabric they don't have any problem making their first pojagi. With the kit they can realize a bigger one too. When the pojagi is finished, they can use it as a small curtain on a window or put it on some cloth for customization.

W6 - Colourful Geometry

From colourful fabric scraps we put together different sized circles (hexagons, squares triangles - as desired), which are then pieced and appliquéd onto the background using the sewing machine. The wall hanging is quilted with colourful threads and the decorative stitches of your sewing machine - the perfect way to explore the decorative stitch repertoire of your machine.

W7 - Layering

In this workshop we work with foundation fabric (participants' favourite colours, can be thick) and various thin and transparent fabrics, paper/fibres or other translucent and transparent materials. Small fragments of gold or silver can also be used for the backing layers. When we layer thin layers on top of each other, they reappear and interesting effects are created. These layers of fabric can be gently sewn together in some places and the work can be finished later / at home. I advise my participants on the choice of colours and materials and how to combine thin layers of material to make an interesting picture (or quilt).

W8 – Designing the Rhytm

Lines and stripes never go out of fashion! This course is intended as an encouragement to create your own unique decorative surface by exploring and combining several fascinating and fun way to make “stripe” techniques. Along with an “updated” and easy way of making X blocks, the students will also learn the modern version of the classical quilting technique “mola” and experiment with different shapes, fabrics and materials. Participants will learn the design principles as well as guidelines how to incorporate and juxtapose different linear forms as well as colours in the composition. This art piece may also further function as an idea or a part of a bigger quilt.

W9 – Pojagi 2

The second one (3 colours and white) is 30 x 40 cm: during this workshop participants will learn how to manage curves and to create something really personalized playing with creativity and imagination. They will learn how to work with concave and convex shapes. This kind of work with curves is traditional in this Korean traditional art. Like for the first one I propose a kit at the same price, with 50 x 50 cm white organdy and three pieces of dyed organdy for the curves. And for the first one, it is voluntary.

W10 – Roundabout

In this project, we will sew a circle composed of 28 segments, which will be integrated into a background. We are going to create a hole in the centre in which a large bead, small objects made of clay or glass or the like can be featured.

There are two approaches to choosing fabrics:

1. Let yourself be inspired by your scraps stash and arrange these fabrics into a pleasing gradation of colours.
2. Start with the object to be featured in the centre of your quilt and choose fabrics accordingly.

The radiant quilting can be done beautifully with a sewing machine.
