COURSE OVERVIEW • 5 days
Explore the exciting possibilities of windows and doors as you design and let the light into your quilt! Do what other artists have done over the centuries and use windows and doors to open your eyes to another view. Using these shapes and the spaces they define, discover the vitality of positive and negative design and simple geometric forms to create your own unique quilt based on the openings and closings in the buildings and structures around us. Demonstrations and examples will include ways to refine construction techniques. Discussions and visual information will enrich our potential for understanding the fascination we have with looking in and looking out. 
    
On class days, students should expect to spend the day working on their assignments and attending meetings between 9am and 4pm EST. Students will not spend the majority of their time in front of their screens. Each course is optimized to create a balance of screen time and work time.  Your instructor is located in South Africa and has a 7-hour time difference from EST.

ABOUT Rosalie Dace

I am obsessed with light and color, loving the rich contrasts resulting from the juxtaposition of cottons, silks, velvets, brocade, and sheers. I love traditional quilts but want my quilts to say something about their time and place in history and come directly from my life. As a teacher and artist, my aim is to fill my students with confidence and the excitement I feel about creating art in fabric and fiber. I aim to guide them in the direction of their interest in a non-threatening supportive environment so that they create more than they thought possible.
