I taught a 'sketching and watercolor: journal style' workshop this past Sunday. We spent the morning at the beach, then the afternoon at a lovely 'water-wise' garden in downtown Laguna Beach. Husb and I spent the weekend. I'll post photos too.

Pacific Coast Fiber Artists & Friends present "EDGES" sponsored by Interweave/Quilting Arts.
Cutting edge fiber artists give us a view of their interpretation of the theme "Edges" - the sharp cutting part of a blade, sharpness, keenness; the projecting ledge of a cliff, brink; the part furthest from the middle; border, margin - from nature, architecture, household objects, a silhouette, tools and/or the edge of anything interesting by using colors, contrasts, and textures. This exhibit makes it debut at Long Beach Internation Quilt Festival.

Tree of Life: Art Quilt Workshop
With Jane LaFazio
In San Diego at The Shepherdess
2 day workshop: Saturdays May 9 & 16
10am-3pm each day
This class is a great introduction to small art quilts or for the more experienced quilter, to create their own unique small art quilt. We’ll work in approximately 9x12” or smaller to assure you’ll finish your quilt quickly and be thrilled with the result. During the first class, with Jane’s help, you’ll design your own ‘tree of life’ from your imagination or based on images that inspire you. You’ll learn about fabrics (paper, vinyl metal etc) that you may want to use in your quilt. We’ll cover construction and sewing (either by hand or machine, your choice.) For the second class, you’ll bring in your work in progress and Jane will show you embellishment techniques, embroidery and finishing styles to complete your “Tree of Life.” Lots of individual attention and creative brainstorming and fun.
Material list will be emailed to registered students.
