Workshops

QUILT North frequently sponsors workshops, which may be taught by visiting speakers, members of other guilds, or members of our own guild. Sign-up sheets are available at the monthly meetings and there is usually a limit to the number of participants at each workshop.

Sometimes there are cutoff dates for members to register; it is customary to invite members of nearby guilds to sign up if the quota of enrollees has not been met. You are asked to pay the workshop fee when you sign up in order to hold your place. There will be no refunds unless there is another participant to take your place.

Sign up early for the workshops you’d like to attend. You can do so at the workshops table during a meeting, by emailing QUILT North, or by emailing Jo Thomas.

Below are the exciting workshops kicking off the 2018-2019 guild year – sign up is currently open. Save your spot! Support guild activities! Details will be added as they are confirmed.

Unless otherwise indicated, workshops are held at the Elks Lodge, 695 Mac Elroy Road, Ballston Lake, NY 12019; look at the Directions page for how to get there.

“Two Design Strategies in Small Scale Studies” with David Hornung

9 am to 3 pm
$50 members, $60 non members

Flex your design muscle! In this workshop David will talk to us about how design involves both intentional, controlled action and random, unconscious elements. He will help us explore two design strategies—one being chance-based composition and the other being symmetry with variation.

This is an easy workshop to prep for – David will supply colored paper and card stock. Students will each bring a large glue stick, scissors, an Exacto knife, and a self-healing cutting mat. This is an opportunity for artistic discovery!

At the Elks Lodge, 695 MacElroy Road, Ballston Lake, NY 12019
