Sue Benner

Composition Quartet
Quilting Workshop

Returning 2022!

Carpinteria, California

It is a pleasure to welcome Sue Benner!

Sue will be teaching a class entitled “Composition Quartet” The exploration of abstraction in the art quilt medium is the theme of this workshop, both objective (abstracted from an actual subject) and non-objective. Through exercises, digital slide shows, and individual discussions, Sue will present several methods for developing abstract imagery. Each student will create a series of works based on source materials brought to class for inspiration. Instruction on using fusible collage as the construction technique will be presented, but these concepts can later be applied to other techniques as well. This is a great class for pushing your personal work.

We hold our retreats at a church in Carpinteria, California with lovely light to sew by and an really beautiful outdoor patio. Our catered lunches are delicious and our check in Wine and Cheese is a very fun get acquainted event! We do offer each person attending table space of their own to work on and we have a great ironing set up!  For those not familiar with Carpinteria it is home to one of the best quilt stores in the state, Roxanne’s a Wish and a Dream, with a huge selection of fabrics and also yarns, notions and gifts. It is located on the beach, just off the 101 Highway between Santa Barbara and Ventura.

We have arrangements with the Holiday Inn Express Carpinteria for lodging (not included in our pricing) and if you call the local number and tell them you are with us they will set you up with our discounted rate.  Number is 1-805-566-9499!
