More Info

Artwork by Sue BennerEach participant creates one or two landscape quilts along with several small studies. The class studies different approaches to representing landscape, including those of artists in a variety of media. Sue Benner shows students how to look at the landscape, analyze it, and translate it to fabric using several fused construction methods to help them each accomplish their goals. For those that are taking this workshop for the second time, a more ambitious project can be pursued.

Sue began making landscape images from raw edges, selvedges, and other odds and ends from scrap bags. From there she has gone on to add other techniques and develop a large series of work inspired by wetlands and prairies in her childhood home state of Wisconsin.

Previous students of this class have told Sue that this changed the way they saw the land.
