by Pamela Allen
There are two parts to every art quilt: the technical and the artistic. The technical expertise of stitching, appliqué, quilting, blocking, binding comes from making many quilts. The other side... the ART part... is more ephemeral and esoteric, as it requires many years of questioning, risk taking and imagination to develop. Join Pamela Allen in an exploration of three-dimensional effects and make the transition from traditionally designed quilts to art quilts! You’ll venture outside conventional methods of quiltmaking with Pamela’s open-ended approach. Develop a fabric collage by freehand scissor cutting, layering different fabrics, mixing unlikely combinations of fabrics, and much more. Special Features include: Trunk show, photographic retrospective, outtakes and product reference. DVD, 'Think Like An Artist' by Pamela Allen, running time is 120 minutes.
