ABOUT THIS RETREAT

About "Embroidered Fabric Collage"

Over the course of our time together, you’ll have an opportunity to create several 5x7” art quilt collages incorporating raw edged fused appliqué with fabric and hand embroidery. We’ll explore a variety of inspiring resources including a field trip excursion that will generate ideas for shapes, patterns, textures and color. Learn several embroidery stitches and how to incorporate them into your design for maximum impact and artistry. We’ll cover tips for fused appliqué and improvisational composition. Materials fee will cover almost all your supplies so you don’t have to gather and pack too much from your studio. We’ll share the creative process together with time for feedback, conversations, and collaborative development.

 

Appropriate for all levels.

Artist Bio
DeborahBoschert19.jpg

Deborah Boschert is an artist, author and teacher.

She creates art quilts with layers of fabric, paint and stitching.

 

The personal symbols and details in her work reflect her experiences and feelings about places she’s lived and the things she’s done. In her art quilts, the tiny details are as important as the over-all design.

As in life, every-day little joys compliment the bigger adventures. 

Her award-winning art quilts have been exhibited in quilt shows and art galleries throughout the United States and internationally.

She has appeared on Quilting Arts TV and The Quilt Show.

She is published in many books and magazines.

Deborah is the author of Art Quilt Collage: A Creative Journey in Fabric, Paint and Stitch. 

Deborah regularly gives presentations and workshops to quilt guilds and visual arts groups.

She is always eager to share her ideas about creativity and the possibilities of creating with fabric.

She gently nudges students to try new things as they work through the process of creating original art that they love. 

Deborah also serves on the board of Studio Art Quilt Associates. She lives near Dallas, TX with her husband and two kids. She loves to travel, do crossword puzzles, drink coffee, practice yoga and listen to podcasts.
