Bowl Art (Quilt in a Bowl)
Instructor: Hilde Morin
Thursday & Friday, April 11 & 12, 2019, 10 am to 4:30 pm
Hilde Morin, a fiber artist, looks for flow and drama in the creation of art quilts. She finds her inspiration in both, natural and in architectural scenes, having a particular interest in cities, towns, buildings and weathered structures. In her natural scenes she represents reality by simplifying or suggesting it through either abstract or primitive designs. Her technique includes the creation of a first layer of improvised pieced fabric with the addition of a second layer of texture thru extensive thread work and surface design. Her creations are influenced by her multi-cultural background and travels.
In this class you will create a three dimensional art piece in the shape of a bowl. Starting with heavy duck canvas, you will shape a bowl and then decorate with your own design and embellishments. You will be inspired by the bowls Hilde brings with her to show and you will be able to be more creative than you imagined! Class size is limited to 12 students, so each student will receive lots of individual attention over the two day class. You should leave class with most of the fabric parts of your bowl completed and Hilde will talk to you about stitching and finishing your work of fabric art. Size of finished bowl is approximately 16" diameter.
