A four day workshop with Improv Quilter and bit-maker Maria Shell.

From September 16-19, 2018, the quaint and roomy community hall on Denman Island will be home to a 4 day workshop with Maria Shell. Maria is a self-titled "bit-maker". She cuts and sews solid coloured fabrics using her artistic instincts and transforms these bits into modern improvisational quilts. Maria is a spark-plug of energy, and shares openly about her artwork, her art practice, the business of being an artist, on writing, and on living in Alaska with her family. She is a joy to be in a room with and infuses the classroom with creativity, colour and energy.

Maria is coming to BC to teach a mash-up of two of her most popular workshops. The first two days will be spent Making Prints From Solids in which she will teach pattern-making and tons about colour and colour reltaionships. The next two days will be Blow It Up days, starting with a traditional quilt block, or one of your own design, and making it BIG with all the work done in the first two days. All of this takes place in the natural setting of a rural gulf island community.

Denman Island is a northern gulf island, lying just off the east coast of Vancouver Island about one hour's drive north of Nanaimo. The weather is fine in September with warm days and cooling nights, harvest season will be upon us and the organic farmers of the island will have plenty of food to share. There is a farmers market on saturdays, many art studios open by appointment or drop in, the quaint "downtown" centre of Denman is home to shops and services and nature surrounds it all.

The workshop fee includes lunch each day. There will be an opt-in dinner available each evening. Accomodation can be found through Airbnb and VRBO. We will be helping to match people who need rooms with people who have rooms as much as possible, email me at barb@artleap.ca or check the Artleap.ca site. Don't forget to sign up for our email news.


About refunds: There are a lot of moving parts that go into planning an event like this. In order to make it all happen, things need to be booked and paid for long before the first rotary cutter hits the mat and the first foot hits the power pedal on the sewing machine. On this note, we are not able to offer a full refund if you have to cancel. The amount of the eventbrite admin fees and the first $300. is non refundable. If you have to cancel up to 30 days before the event, a refund of $380. is possible. It is okay to transfer your seat to another person, just let us know. If we cancel, all funds will be refunded.
