Abstract Art For Quiltmakers at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, TN
Having a great time in the Smoky Mountains at the famous (100 years old!) Arrowmont School in Gatlinburg, TN - yes , we were told, it was here before Dolly Parton - actually before Dolly Parton's grandaddy was born!!
Here is my quilt hanging in the main gallery: - the tiny little orange and green thing at the far end - very well lit though!
And here are some pictures of the class hard at work:
probably gossiping - but we won't comment on that!!...
However, look at all the designs up on the design walls:
Linda and Elaine working on their designs...
Cindy deciding which piece of many beautiful options to make..
Liz on the sewing machine hard at work....
it's a great class, I know they're going to get a lot done.and look at all the wonderful space in the Arrowmont Textile studio...no sitting squashed up at a small table in the dark....
yesterday we designed all day, today we dyed gradations of black or navy and tonight a small monochromatic piece will be made. Tomorrow we'll burst into color!! (if not song!)
My next workshop will be in Falmouth on Cape Cod in October.....Abstract Art for Quiltmakers: Design and Dye.
So, if you have been, thanks for reading!! And do check out Arrowmont, they have some wonderful classes (arrowmont.org) or if you're interested in the Cape Cod workshop, (there are a couple of places left) give Linda Gallagher a call. (there's a link on the sidebar, or email me and I'll put you in touch with her - there's an email link to me on the sidebar too). Elizabeth
