Salt Marsh Workshop with Antelope Island Inspiration Day

Salt Lake City, UT         Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20, 9:30 - 4:30

Registration is open until March 1, 2018.  For details or to register, contact Susan Dawson at sstitches@slcvalley.com

A day trip to Antelope Island features a lovely salt marsh for inspiration...and then a two day Salt Marsh class. Develop color confidence with paint and stitches as you capture the peaceful atmosphere of the salt marsh, a cradle of birth for many creatures. You'll learn to paint the design on silk using the Serti technique. Resist protects white areas first and then is washed away after painting. Textural contrast develops between the smooth painted sky and water and the rough stitched grasses.  Subtle color concepts include perspective, value contrast, temperature contrast, and the use of color passages to unify the design.

Taming the Stash Monster

Is the Stash Monster taking over your closet, room ... house?  Do you feel stalled with a box full of UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) and a stash of beautiful projects, threads, canvases, fabrics, beads, and more?  This course can help you get your stash under control.  First, define your preferences so that you can decide what YOU want to keep in your stash (and what you can remove).  Three ways of clearing your stash are given, depending on how much stash you need to remove.  Resources are provided for donating or selling eliminated items.  You’ll learn the requirements for archival storage, ways to prevent or solve stash problems such as insects, mildew, and fading. This course will help you make your stash work more effectively for you!  More information at www.EGAUSA.org/index.php/education/group-correspondence-courses/other
