Sandra Bruce workshop Material Matrix @ Trinity Lutheran Church
Jul 8 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Sandra Bruce will teach Material Matrix

8 July 2017

Trinity Lutheran Church
Set up 8:30 start 9am. Finish 3

Lunch is potluck, but if you prefer your own sack lunch, please do so.

Presently Sandra is teaching and lecturing her technique, “Material Matrix” which involves interpreting a gridded photograph with fabric. This process is different than other gridded photograph methods in that it involves piecing and a loose, representational style inspired by the painter, Chuck Close.

 The 6-hour class is about technique and all students work on the same image  “Sew Ready” see below to gain skills in this method. She is a hands-on teacher and works closely with students to gain “the eye” for this process. Sandra will do a lecture for our guild the night before that showcases her work, her background, and the road that led her to this technique.

  • Webmaster Elizabeth Roebber will present an overview of the guild website  (ACQG.com) and use of Facebook.
  • Collection of ornaments for the Christmas tree for the Holiday Auction will be done.  Due to the timing of the auction and the scheduling of speakers, ornaments will be collected at this meeting.  The theme of the Christmas tree this year is “Winter Wonderland”.  This year for every ornament that you donate, you will receive one raffle ticket.  (Up to five tickets).  There will be an assortment of fun items that you will be able to use your raffle tickets for.   (This raffle is different than the usual vendor donations)   Everyone in the guild is very creative and talented.  All the ornaments collected this evening will be displayed  so everyone can enjoy them.
  • A Christmas tree skirt would make a wonderful addition to the tree to be auctioned.  If anyone is interested in this, please let Jill Quinn know.
  • Paul Howell will be on hand to sharpen your scissors for $8.00 each.
