This is my attempt to capture some of the knowledge "from the Library"
First up is a DVD - here is the amazon link - www.amazon.com/Womans-Work-Making-Quilts-Creating
Making Quilts- Creating Art
This video shows 10 women and how they work. I don't currently quilt but have been attracted to some of their books and videos because they are basically building art pieces. I love to be able to dip into other creative pursuits and see how they explain design. I am also interested in their color theory.
These women gather and work as a critique group and sounding board for each other. I have been urning for a creative art gypsy group near where I live and this video made me renew my efforts in that area.
TWO TIPS FOR MY STUDIO-
- I loved the artist who was building structures to hang her pieces from using willow.
- I also loved how one artist organized her fabric stash all to the same size and by color. I think I will apply this to my growing stash & my collage materials.
