It’s time for a short summary of this year’s Emma Lake Dyeing to Quilt workshop. We parted on Saturday afternoon last week to return to our respective homes and vacation spots and when I sorted through the images a few moments ago vivid memories began to flash back. I was immediately transported back to the creative energy, exchange of ideas, techniques and experiences as well as the laughter and excitement.
I could not help myself but choose images that portrait the energy this group brought to the campus and I am willing to bet that any visitor to today’s blog post will be drawn in to the slideshow anticipating the each image with curiosity.
Thank you Donna, Alison, Paula, Shan, Gillian, Bev and Camilla! YOU made Eamma Lake 2012 a memorable and rewarding experience. I look forward to staying in touch and can’t wait to receive images of your finished pieces! I can’t believe that 16 new works were started (of which several are nearly finished) in this week-long class – I believe this is a record in my 23 years of teaching adults.
Dates for the 2013 are set! Mark your calendars for August 11th – 17th, 2013 for Art Quilt Campus: Transforming Inspiration into Textile Art.
It’s too early to register but I suggest that you contact Paul Trottier <firstname.lastname@example.org> at the Kenderdine Campus at Emma Lake if you are interested. He will start a list and email you as soon as registration officially opens (March 2013). The class is capped at 12 participants to ensure an ultimate learning experience.
