About This Workshop

Jennifer Sampou, having lived in San Miguel, Mexico–a vibrant artist’s town is thrilled to offer a 5 day workshop in Santa Fe, NM for quilters ready to absorb the high desert hues and sense of place into their creative quilt making process.

Students will be immersed in Georgia O’Keeffe country explore bold blocks, color mapping with new earth inspired SKY Ombrés, (Robert Kaufman) and learn how to incorporate their own stash as you cut and piece luscious fabrics pulling cues from the land, art and culture of the Southwest.

Santa Fe is an enchanted artisan’s haven known for its rich Native American/Mexican/Spanish history and the first US city to be chosen by UNESCO as a Creative City, one of only nine cities in the world to hold this designation. What better place to create courageous and colorful quilts? Jennifer will offer daily presentations on shape, value, design and balance. Various sewing techniques for successful piecing, pressing and construction will be discussed as students play and create their unique piece. A combination of structure and improvisation is what Jennifer loves to teach as students explore new concepts yet also set up boundaries to keep rhythm and some comfort in their process. Jennifer’s own OMBRÉ QUILTS Book (C&T Publishing) will be referenced and expanded upon.

Trips to local sites, such as The Georgia O’Keeffe museum, and witnessing a sunset or sunrise will inspire and enhance student’s ombré work. Pulling from her own experiences of living in Mexico, Jennifer loves to engage with her students with humorous stories, meaningful conversations and good fun will be blended like a good ombre, into this quilting retreat.
