This class will help take the fear out of design. Using your own nature photo, you’ll learn how to interpret it in fabric. Multiple group and solo exercises will give you the skills and confidence you need to start your own design. A raw edge collage technique will ensure maximum flexibility and speedy results. Your quilt will look entirely different from the photo shown since you’ll design it from your own photo.
A former flight instructor, Ellen Lindner didn’t try her hand at art until her forties. As she began to explore this new interest, reading, observing, and experimenting became her teachers. Her work is often inspired by the tropical plants in her Florida neighborhood. She enjoys portraying their vibrant colors and dramatic shapes with her own fabric collage technique. Now using her teaching skills at a lower altitude, she teaches online and in person, as well as via her episodes on Quilting Arts (PBS) and The Quilt Show (online.) Ellen has also written two eBooks and several articles.
Ellen says, “I consider making art to be an adventure: one filled with challenges, joys, frustrations, and surges of adrenalin.”
