Sue is an innovator in her field, creating original dyed and painted fabrics which she combines with recycled textiles to form fields of structured pattern, vivid beauty, and riotous variation. Her work has been juried into Quilt National seven times.
Sue fired up her students and set them off working through her technique exercises. These photos are from just the second day of class! A riot of color and pattern.
It may be December, but the weather thinks it is Spring. The temps have been in the upper 50s for most of the week. Of course, in the studio with 18 irons going it feels like summer! Good thing opening the studio windows cools it down nicely.
Next week is our last class of the season – Susan Brubaker Knapp teaching a workshop called “Paint, Fuse and Thread Sketch”. There is still some room in this workshop, so give us a call to join in the fun. Three of the students from the Sue Benner workshop are staying the extra week to take Susan’s workshop!
