FRCQ offers several workshops each year addressing a broad range of skill levels and techniques. New Skills workshops are taught by regional artists and run 1-2 days. Major Workshops, including retreat workshops, are taught by national and international teachers and typically run 2 or more days. Instructor and venue expenses determine tuition for major workshops. Tuition is set with the intent that FRCQ neither makes nor loses money, offering members access to high-quality instructors at the lowest possible cost.

Only current FRCQ members may register for workshops. Registration forms must be completed and mailed with tuition and materials fees (if required) to the Workshop Director. If a workshop does not fill as needed to cover expenses, it may be cancelled 30 days prior to the start of the class. Full refunds will be issued to those registered. If a registered participant elects to withdraw from a workshop, a refund will be issued only if another member on the wait-list can fill the space. Registration is not transferable. For more information about how to register for our workshops, please contact our Workshops team.

Susan Brooks New Skills Workshop

Susan Brooks is a fiber artist and fiber art teacher living in Louisville, CO. Her work is known for her imaginative use of various surface design techniques including deconstructive silk screening, dye painting and hand dyed fabrics. Her work has been juried into many prestigious shows, including Quilt National. Founder of “The Garage” studio in Louisville, CO, Susan is a teacher known for her creativity and generosity of spirit. We will be working with silk screens to create one of a kind, organic looking fabrics. Each screen will deconstruct making a unique one of a kind print.

The morning will be spent making our one of a kind screens with at least three different methods and the afternoon will be breaking down or deconstructing the designs onto fabrics!


Deborah Fell – Paint, Stitch, Create Quilts

Sign up and pay online here


If you’re looking for a workshop to stretch you gently out of your comfort zone, this class provides the perfect opportunity.

Work with a different approach, a different format, and different materials to create pieces of art on a new level. Using pads of canvas paper, you will create small art quilts that can work in a series. Emphasis will be on using design elements—line, shape, color—to make each piece relate to the others. A variety of techniques/materials will be employed, including paint, layering, mixed media, stamps and stencils, paper, found objects, stitching, and organic mark-making.
