This is a VERY special retreatl for which I’m creating an exclusive project based in handwork and appliqué to share with students over 3 days at the beautiful Doxford Hall Hotel & Spa. In addition to the workshop, beautiful surroundings, and a full day viewing quilts at the Beamish Museum, students have the opportunity to add 3 nights in London that will include touring and shopping the fabric district. A dreamy week! These spots sell out fast so visit the Handcrafted Retreats info page to plan your time with me!
Combining Anna Maria’s interest in composing vignettes and handwork, she presents a class that covers all of the techniques necessary to create a visual feast of fabric and stitching. Multiple techniques for applique, raw and turned, by machine and by hand, are shared on top of a lesson in composition.
Anna Maria switches up traditional color conventions in order to develop stunning and individual palettes. Beginning with a traditional color wheel, Anna demonstrates how each color interacts with one another depending on its position in the wheel. Then using a fun color palette exercise with fabric, she guides students towards building an adventurous, yet theory based, palette.
