  • Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts-Cutting Loose
    All day
    04/04/2017-04/05/2017

    Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts, Portland Road, Cedarburg, WI, United States

    Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts, Portland Road, Cedarburg, WI, United States

    By popular demand, Susan Carlson is back at WMQFA to teach classes after her exciting exhibit and lecture on “Crocodylus Smylus” in December, 2015.

    The Cutting Loose class combines aspects of Susan’s earlier classes (Somethin’ Fishy and Somethin’ in the Air) with her evolving techniques of fabric collage. Cutting Loose demonstrates a looser approach to the piecing and assembly of a wall quilt. Emphasis will be placed on the collage piecing process. Patterns or templates will not be used. Instead, students will sketch their design onto a foundation fabric and fill in the design with fabrics of their choice. This encourages playfulness, serendipity, and a willingness to “cut loose.” Due to time constraints, students need to create a fish, butterfly, or bug. Designs will also be available from Susan for a small fee of $3-$5.

    Instructor Bio: Susan Carlson is an artist by birth, a teacher by calling, and an author by choice. She has been developing and practicing her own technique of fabric collage quilting for over thirty years, teaching it for 20 years, and has written two books describing it (Freestyle Quilts and Serendipity Quilts). Each year she travels around the country and internationally helping hundreds of students to discover and set free the quilt artist inside. Her quilts have won awards from the American Quilter’s Society and the International Quilt Festival.Susan is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and a long time student of the Meta Carlson Studio of Fabric Creations. www.susancarlson.com

    Meals and Lodging: Bring a brown bag lunch or order daily from a Cedarburg eatery. Beverages and snacks provided. There are a number of B & Bs and chain hotels in the Cedarburg/Grafton area and all are in an easy driving distance from the museum.

    Class fee is $265.
