From Elizabeth Brandt, Michigan SAQA Representative: Renowned Quilt Artist NANCY CROW to share her IMPROVISATIONAL QUILTS expertise in a summer workshop in Muskegon, ON August 22-26, 2016... have a peek!


Nancy Crow Workshop: Improvisational Exercises 
5 days, August 22-26, 2016
Instructor: Nancy Crow
Level: Intermediate to Advanced (sewing machine used)
Class Fee: $675 ($500 is non-refundable)
Location: Century Club Ballroom (a block from the museum in downtown Muskegon, http://www.centuryclubballroom.com/)

This brand new 5-day class has been specifically developed for students desirous of being far more experimental using machine-piecing techniques. Students will be expected to work spontaneously and intuitively with nontraditional quilt-making techniques as they explore design exercises that promote improvisational approaches to composition without benefit of "pre-planning" and "intellectualizing."

If students want to learn to work more effectively, more efficiently from "instincts" and "intuition” they must come with an open mind and no agendas, ready for growth and for risk-taking!

NOTE: This workshop runs during the same week as the opening (Thursday, Aug 25) of Circular Abstractions: Bull's Eye Quilts, an exhibit curated by Nancy Crow. The exhibition will have an accompanying catalog that will be for sale. The museum is near Lake Michigan and within a short drive of both Muskegon and Gerald Ford International Airports (Grand Rapids).

To secure your spot the museum is asking for the full payment of $675 (credit card or check payment). Please call 231-720-2587 to register or ask questions.
