Crow Timber Frame Barn art retreats contemporary quilt making

DContemporary art quilt classesiscover this beautiful jewel in the farmland of > central Ohio where one can attend quiet, secluded art retreats. Twice a year, the Crow Timber Frame Barn opens for individuals and small groups wanting private art and textile workshops. The retreats take place in the most beautiful months of the year, a time when there are spectacular floral displays and comfortable temperatures; these are the months of April/May and again in the fall months of September/October.

If your dream has been to study with leaders in the fields of contemporary quilt making, fabric dyeing, composition, color, design, machine-piecing, machine-quilting, fabric and paper collage, shibori, screenprinting, mark-making and surface design on fabric, in superbly outfitted classrooms dedicated to serious art making, then this is the location. (Class levels range from beginning to advanced.) While at the farm, one can absorb the beauty of the surrounding landscape, 90 acres of trees, fields, pond, and walkways, focused on conservation practices that have elevated the numbers of song birds, assorted creatures and native plants. Embrace this opportunity to savor the quietness of the farm, broken only by nature's songs, while learning about composition, color, collage, drawing, printing, sewing techniques, quilting and dyeing.

Enjoy the camaraderie of others from all over the world who share similar interests and make lasting friendships. Students have traveled to the Crow Timber Frame Barn for workshops from Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, U.K., Vietnam, and nearly every state in the U.S.
