Bethanne’s journey as an art quilter, from her beginnings making traditional quilts, then branching out into pattern manipulation, to her current pictographic silk art quilts is explored with a slide presentation and with a trunk show of available quilts. (Bethanne will show us all the show quilts that are currently home at the time of the lecture, which will vary). Bethanne will explore how her silk quilts come to be, from initial sketches, paintings, photography to final creation and finish details. Additionally, Bethanne discusses how any quilter can learn to recognize inspiration and document and organize it to facilitate quilt design through sharing her own techniques and sketchbooks in this funny guild pleaser!
Our guild meeting will begin at 9:30 CST. Bethanne Nemesh will present “Walk a Creative Path” at 10 am. After the lecture, those that are taking the workshop will take a break for lunch then return to Zoom a few minutes before 12:30 when the workshop will begin.
