On yesterdays post Timaree asked yesterday in the comments “Could you tell us what the differences or main difference is between what you offer versus the wiki?” Timaree is referring to my Encrusted Crazy Quilting which will start on June 19th. It is a good question and I am sure many people think but have not asked the same.
My class emphasises designing a block as well as the technical aspects of making a block. Many people attempt crazy quilting but find it hard to juggle all the bits and pieces together. Put simply with using so much embellishment they find it hard to do. I teach how to design the block so that it reads as well as the technical information on how to make it.
Students have contact with me in the forum for the full six weeks and the lessons also print out to over 200 pages of information. For what is it worth I trained in an art school have 3 visual arts degrees at various levels and if you value experience have taught in an art school for a long time.
For many people you can only go so far with free stuff online. These resources are good and help people learn but the odd structured class does help and online lessons in comparison to face to face lessons are a lot cheaper. There are also many comments from students on the classes offered page which has loads of information on how they are run etc
Perhaps some of my old students who have done the class might leave a comment about this as I often wonder if I give too much away but the challenges I run, the resources I point to are only part of the picture as structuring this information plus teaching design skills into a class is what you are buying.
While I am at it I will remind everyone that I am also running another course Using a studio journal commencing June 27th
OK I am on overload at work so I am taking a few days off blogging. I will be still around approving comments and moderating stitching fingers
