About This Workshop

Bring the magic of French painter Henri Matisse into your quilts as you work with large areas of joyful color and sensuous line. After discovering the variety of this celebrated artist’s work, students will make a few paper cut-outs before starting a large color-filled composition. Emphasis will be on the use of large areas of pure color, curvilinear line, pattern and clear shapes, all exciting ideas to piece, appliqué or fuse in fabric. This is an ideal approach to simplifying design as well as responding to color, line and shape.

What I dream of is an art of balance, purity and serenity, devoid of all troubling subject matter…”  Henri Matisse.

Preparation and Requirements
We will be focusing on Matisse’s color, line, shape and pattern. Take time to find and be excited by books or websites on his work and those he influenced (e.g Diebenkorn) Look carefully to help you make color and fabric choices. Remember you will not be copying one of Matisse’s works, but rather making your own work, inspired by his work!
