Anna Hergert, Art & Design

***NEW – Virtual Classes – NEW***

Last updated December 31st, 2020

The creative mind does not rest easily…

…and after touching base with numerous former workshop participants, artist friends and people whose input and opinions I greatly respect I am ready to venture into the virtual teaching realm by offering a few learning opportunities.

Are you disappointed your annual guild gathering or retreat was cancelled due to physical and social distancing rules?

Is your creative cluster unable to meet in person this summer and your hopes to receive face-to-face feedback on the work you have been exploring?

Are you stumped for ideas or overwhelmed with too much inspiration and are looking for some focused suggestions and guidance?

Look no further! After years of facilitating master classes and guided studio sessions in textile design and techniques I have decided to make myself available to you via the ZOOM platform.

Below please find short descriptions of what is on offer or what is coming up in the near future. Scroll down for details on workshop delivery. Thank you for your interest. My contact information is also provided below in case you have questions.

Temporary Notice: In light of the sale of our property in Saskatchewan and a move to Nova Scotia I am postponing the start of online classes till spring 2021. I have continued with individual consultations as these are easier to fit into my days. Thanks for your patience and understanding!


Individual Consultation:

Are you looking for help/advice/input pertaining to your art practice, a design dilemma, sound business advice in the creative industry? This is your opportunity to connect. Privacy guaranteed. Let’s make a date!

Fee: $ 60/hour/Individual

To start the process contact Anna. You will then receive a detailed questionnaire to help Anna prepare for the session.

Coming soon!

Introduction to Design

This popular hands-on design class introduces the quilt and textile artist to a variety of techniques and skills to add to their personal tool box. Simple and effective exercises promise to stretch the imagination and are sure to set the participant on a new course.

Duration and Fee TBD

Kantha Explorations

Hands-on design and stitch exercises based on my book “Inspiration Kantha“, 2017. Due to popular demand this workshop will be expanding on the ideas and concepts introduced in the book. Participants must have access to the book as a reference. Kantha Book link here.

Duration and Fee TBD

Don’t see what you are looking for? Send me an email with your ideas and suggestions! If you have participated in workshops with me in the past you already know that I am receptive to suggestions. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Click here to get to the email window now.

Group Consultation:

Is your creative cluster looking for help/advice/input pertaining to your art practice, a design dilemma, sound business advice in the creative industry? This is your opportunity to connect. Experience has shown that a shorter than 90 minute group consultation was very rushed. 90 minutes for up to three participants yields a more satisfactory experience!

Fee: $ 90/for 90 minutes for up to 3 people

To start the process contact Anna. You will then receive a detailed questionnaire to help Anna prepare for the session.

Coming soon!

Design – The Next Level

All fired up after the introductory design class? There is so much more! Deepen your understanding of design elements and principles and dive deeper into design explorations with fresh exercises and new skills based on an in-depth artist study. Introduction to design an asset.

Duration and Fee TBD

Developing the Good Eye: Exploring Contemplative Photography

After several years of deepening her personal mindfulness practice through practicing Haiku poetry and contemplative photography daily and teaching Miksang Contemplative Photography with a partner, Anna is branching out on her own. Email Anna to receive a detailed brochure.

Fee C$ 120/person
16 hours


The platform of delivery is ZOOM. Participants must download the latest version of ZOOM to ensure the connection is secure. Once registered the participant’s name will be placed on the class list and just prior to the first session a secure meeting link with password will be issued.

An invoice will be issued upon registration. Payment options are PayPal and e-Transfer. Registration is confirmed once payment has been received.

Workshops are limited to 6 participants to ensure optimal learning for each person. Various learning styles will be addressed through visual, auditory and hands-on presentations. Detailed handouts and face to face reviews are a vital part of the workshops on offer.

Important Note: All individual and small group consultations require the completion of a detailed questionnaire and images if available (for optimal feedback/input).

Request your questionnaire HERE. If the form does not automatically pop up, copy and paste the email address at the bottom of the page into an email you generate and request the questionnaire.

Let’s explore creativity together.
