Maps are intriguing as an art form. Through sites like Google maps, almost any place can be translated into an exquisite mixed media Cartographic Quilt. In this 3-day workshop, you choose a favorite place and then use fabric, paint and thread to create a cartographic map that evokes feelings or elements of your chosen location. Architect and artist Valerie Goodwin guides you through a series of paint, collage and mixed media techniques that will introduce and reinforce design principles while providing you with a structured framework for experimentation.
Valerie Goodwin is an architect and artist who creates fiber art inspired by the realistic and abstract imagery of maps. In this day-long workshop with Valerie, you'll tap into your innermost creative side and create a beautiful mixed media map of an imaginery place inspired by haiku, a minimalist form of poetry. Valerie guides you through a structured and nurturing process to write your own haiku and then create a small, simple and understated art quilt map that captures the feeling of your haiku. Workshop sponsored by SandiesLabel at SEFAA Center.
