Denise Labadie – Five-day Art Quilt Design Intensive Workshop
Denise’s Art Quilt Design Intensive workshop focuses on teaching her approach to composition, to fabric painting, and on helping her students gain a hands-on understanding of the comparative effects, strengths, benefits, and use – basically, the “what, why, when, and how” – of alternative quilt top construction and finishing techniques.
The workshop will be highly interactive and very hands-on, and focused more on the development of participant creativity, confidence, and experiential exploration. The participant will learn to use multiple layers of sun-reactive transparent Seta color paints, that can cause differential paint absorption, diffusion, blending, patterning, or mottling. Denise will teach re-useable and replicable techniques [multiple appliqué techniques (reverse, turned edge, and raw edge), insetting, free-form strip piecing, couching, and “thread shadowing”] and “lessons learned” so that each participant’s own creativity can confidently expand. Denise’s classes are fun.
About Denise: Denise is an accomplished quilter and instructor who enthusiastically, energetically, openly, and warmly shares her knowledge and design and color sense. Denise uses a wide variety of colors, fabrics, threads, and yarns in her work, and then constructs her quilts the same way as a stone mason builds a wall. An internationally recognized and published fiber artist and teacher, she has been a featured and solo exhibitor – and instructor – at major exhibitions in the US, France, Spain, Italy, China, South Korea, Luxembourg, Germany, and the Netherlands. She is also a multiple Quilt National (USA) award winner – both People’s Choice and the McCarthy Award for Overall Craftsmanship.
