The Poetry of Quilting with Lesley Riley


Instructor: Lesley Riley

Poetry and quilting have much in common – words and fabric gathered and placed to create a specific emotional response.  In this class we will explore the poetry, not of language, but of quilting. Come with an open mind and an open heart and spend five peaceful days exploring the other side of quilting. We’re going to forget about technique for a while and take a more intuitive approach. By ignoring the rules, you’ll cast aside your doubts and tap into the luminous place within where quilting poetry resides.

To assist you in this journey to the soul, we’ll use image, music, poetry and moving quotations to inspire small fabric fragment collaged quilts.
