Lorna Shapiro

October 18, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Lorna will be presenting on Dare to Design.

Lorna is a quilter who came to quilting after a left-brain-dominated life of over 50 years. Almost immediately, she wanted to make her designs rather than follow someone else’s pattern. However, with no grounding in art or design, figuring out what might be aesthetically pleasing to me seemed a daunting task. Over the years, artists have developed some ground rules for achieving effective design.

In this one-hour lecture, Lorna will share with guild members what she has learned about these ground rules and give examples of how they apply to quilt design.

As part of this discussion, Lorna will look at how fabric texture, visual and tactile, can enhance guild members’ designs and finished quilts! This will be a good introduction for those of those who, like Lorna, came to quilting with no background in art.   For those who have that background, the discussion will be a good refresher and an opportunity for you to share your knowledge with the rest of us!
