Madeline Island School

From Watercolor to Quilt – 5 day workshop

at Madeline Island School of the Arts
August 28 – September 1, 2017

Come join me for a five day quilting workshop retreat at
Madeline Island School of the Arts in stunning Lake Superior!

Imagine – Five full days to focus on your work! Let the friendly MISA staff take care of the details while you invest in yourself! Believe me – this is truly a quilter’s paradise!

In this class, we will begin by creating our own watercolor paintings – don’t worry, no prior painting experience is needed!

We’ll learn many different techniques, and there is plenty of time for experimentation. You will then choose your most dynamic painting to create your own enlarged template and then translate it into a beautiful, abstract quilt using fabrics. When the quilt is done, it will look like a loose, layered, colorful watercolor painting!

Make the most of your week by staying with me on campus!

Your comfortable rooms overlook a peaceful meadow and are located just steps away from the large, light filled studios. These studios are lined with windows, and can easily accommodate an eight-foot table for each student! They also stay open 24/7 and include bottomless cookie jars and unlimited refreshments.

Speaking of the food –

If you stay on campus, your lodging price includes the weekly meal plan! You will be treated to delicious daily breakfast, lunch and two

on-campus dinners. MISA consistently garners high marks from alumni for their amazing meals, and they work very hard to ensure all dietary needs are met (and exceeded!) with a wide variety of artfully prepared meals – you won’t be disappointed!

 Getting there is easy –

Board the car ferry in Bayfield, Wisconsin and in 20 minutes
you’ll slip into “Island Time.”
MISA also provides a convenient roundtrip shuttle service, from the Duluth, Minnesota airport and will bring you directly to your doorstep on campus.

Please consider joining me for an unforgettable
week of creativity and relaxation
August 28 – September 1, 2017!
