Do you love creating things but rarely have extended time to do more than just a few stitches before real life hits? At Creative Arts Weekends, your only distractions and interruptions will be to eat (Fort Food!) or to go have some coffee with your friends. You might even work late into the night or go to bed early if that suits your needs better. For this weekend, bring your current projects or grab a new one from our offerings.
First time camper? – Read our Frequently Asked Questions!
Instructor - Connie Warshall
Cost - $5
Go wild with your scissors (safely, of course) and quickly make random cuts of fabric to create a “watercolor look with a bit of abstractness” onto a fused piece of batting that will eventually be the background for your landscape art quilt. This class is for quilters who already have a stash of batiks, but want to learn to work WITHOUT patterns by creating their own designed landscape. Must already have a knowledge of fabrics, sewing, and have the other tools needed (cutters, mats, machine, etc.). This fun class will give you confidence in creating art quilts without using a ruler or measuring!
Embroidery: Painting with Thread
Instructor - Kara Fleming
Cost - $20
Explore a traditional art in a whole new way! Use thread to make beautiful, textured paintings and patterns.
Day 1: introduction to materials and stitches.
Day 2: sketch out a design and begin adding color and line with thread.
Day 3: Finish off designs, tie up loose bits, and admire your creation!
Instructor - Sandy Robertson
Cost - $50
Two baskets will be completed by Sunday – all equipment for your use and materials included. If interested in only doing the tote basket from Friday night to Saturday, we can arrange for that at the cost of $30.
Instructor - Kate Arvold
Cost - $0 to $30 (dependent on number of kits available)
Streamline your scrapbooking process with the Assembly Line Scrapbooking method from Club Scrap. You will be surprised by how efficient scrapbooking can be using this method! Enjoy preserving your memories, sharing ideas and scrapbook techniques in the midst of fun fellowship.
Drawing & Mixed Media
Instructor - Heidi Koval
Cost - $15
Come take a journey to the right side of your brain. We will talk about and practice drawing what you “really see”, using Blind Contour, upside down drawing, negative space, modified contour and perspective. We will talk about mixing color and paint your own color wheel. Lastly, you will do a contour line drawing of a still life with marker and add color with pastels and watercolor.
You are welcome to bring other craft projects such as scrapbooking, knitting/crocheting, beading, watercolor... etc. All self-led activities are free. Please let the office know upon registration what you decide to bring so spaces for crafting can be offered appropriately.
