Nancy Crow

Nancy has been teaching quiltmaking as an art form for over 30 years; she finds teaching both a very creative experience and uplifting. One of her goals is to help students find a path through roadblocks to a more flexible way of approaching composition. Composition is the focus of all of her 18 workshops in which she proceeds sequentially from beginning to very advanced composition while at the same time introducing many wonderful techniques which can be used in machine-piecing. Nancy promotes machine-piecing as one of the most important ways to work for a quiltmaker, paralleling it to oil painting. Nancy was selected for two national honors: Fellow of the American Craft Council and National Living Treasure by the Museum of World Cultures at the University of North Carolina. The National Living Treasure award honors Americans who work in traditional handicrafts. In addition, she has won many Individual Artist's Fellowships from The Ohio Arts Council. She leads art tours to Peru, Mexico, South Africa, France, and Guatemala, and is the author of seven books, including: Self-Portraits: Mono-Prints, Nancy Crow, Nancy Crow: Improvisational Quilts and Nancy Crow: Quilts and Influences.

    DESCRIPTION for Part I
    This brand new 5-day class has been specifically developed for students desirous of being far more experimental on an advanced level using machine-piecing techniques. Students will be encouraged to work spontaneously and intuitively as they explore design exercises that promote improvisational approaches to composition without benefit of “pre-planning” and “intellectualizing.”

    Design Exercises will be used as a basis for flexing muscle memory in developing a more fluid approach to cutting improvisationally all sorts of SHAPES and LINES (ELEMENTS). These Exercises will emphasize the formation of NEW CONFIGURATIONS that could be used as the MOTIF or SUBJECT MATTER or STARTING IDEA for a figure/ground composition. As a result, students will not only become more experienced in construction and engineering techniques but more comfortable with generating ideas that promote excellent figure/ground composition.

    Color -
    and the values of color from light to dark (5 steps in value) - will be emphasized in all exercises so a great selection of fabrics based on these values must be brought to this workshop. Students will be working in SOLID COLORS the entire 5-days so there is no need to bring any printed or marbled fabrics, only solids whether commercial or hand-dyed. ***Concentrate on collecting DARKS and MEDIUM DARKS!

    If students want to learn to work more effectively, more efficiently from “instincts” and “intuition”
    they must come with an open mind and no agendas, ready for growth and for risk-taking!

    • PLEASE NOTE: These design exercises are not the same as those given in POTPOURRI III or IV.


    PRESENTATION

    NOTES REGARDING FABRIC SUPPLY LIST
    Yes, the rumor is true!!! Yes, I do ask that each student bring lots of fabrics. My personal theory embraces the belief that one will be
    freer to be creative if one has many fabric choices available in class. After 35+ years of teaching, I consider each class I teach to be on a graduate level and therefore I expect students to arrive prepared with all necessary supplies. In that regard, I have outlined those fabrics we will use in this class. For some students, my fabric supply list will seem overwhelming in quantity and variety, while for other students, the selection they bring will never be good enough.

    About solid colors - the more shades you have to work with, the more you will learn about how to work with color. Color is Joyous!!! Color does not cause pain!!! Take DELIGHT in color!!! Working in color does not mean only using BOLD colors or HOT colors; working in color means learning to be versatile in all types of colors.

    I caution you to not bring mostly middle value solids, rather bring a wide variety, including these 5 steps in value:
    • Light values
    • Medium light values
    • Medium values
    • Medium dark values
    • Dark values

    Any color can be
    GLOWING or FLAT:
    • GLOWING tones are any colors mixed with yellow and which have a glow coming off the surface.
    • FLAT tones are those colors mixed with black and which emit a dullness, energy draining very subdued nature.

    Many students arrive with their own hand-dyed solids or stacks they have purchased from other dyers. By all means, bring hand-dyed if you want but they need to be opaque and not have multiple values swimming across them ... meaning white or light splotches on dark colors.

    However, flat solids (dyed commercially) are equally acceptable.

    I usually work with flat colors or my own subtly dyed flat colors. My own palette includes approximately 500 shades.

    I cannot specifically tell you to only bring 1 yard cuts of each color because I know we will be using at least a yard or more of some to many colors depending on each student’s color preferences. If you bring a yard of each – say 5 blues, 5 reds, 5 yellows, 5 greens, etc., but one each in light values, medium light values, medium values, medium dark values, & dark values, that would be better than not having enough. So bring 1 yard of as many colors as you can afford and shorter lengths for the rest.

    DESCRIPTION for Part I
    Strip-piecing is defined as a way of creating a “fabric vocabulary” out of existing fabrics that have been cut selvage to selvage. It is an invaluable way to learn more about color, value usage, proportions, line and shape in a very fluid manner.

    • STRIP-PIECING: To start out, students will be given Design Exercises that outline how to create specific vocabularies known as strip-pieced fabrics. In creating these brand new fabrics (vocabulary), students will develop the muscle memory needed to cut free-hand a large variety of widths of colors quickly and fluidly. In addition, they will also become more efficient machine-piecers. The resulting strip-pieced fabrics will be used in exploring rudimentary figure/ground composition as outlined next.

    • RESTRUCTURING: Next new Design Exercises will push students to cut improvisationally all sorts of SHAPES and LINES (ELEMENTS) out of their already strip-pieced fabrics. These elements will be used in restructuring which means combining shapes and lines into new figures or configurations. As a result, students will become more experienced in construction and engineering techniques and more comfortable with generating ideas that promote excellent figure/ground composition.

    DESCRIPTION for Part II
    • STRIP-PIECING: To start out, in PART II, students will be given new design exercises that outline how to create specific and often more complex fabric vocabularies (known as strip-pieced fabrics). In creating these brand new fabric vocabularies, students will develop the muscle memory needed to cut free-hand quickly and fluidly a large variety of widths of colors.

    • These New Design Exercises will encourage:
    • THE EXPLORATION OF LINE
    • THE EXPLORATION OF WIDER WIDTHS OF SHAPE
    • THE EXPLORATION OF A WIDER USE OF VALUE
    • THE EXPLORATION OF A WIDER USE OF FLAT COLORS

    ***As students become more efficient machine-piecers,
    they will use the resulting strip-pieced fabrics in restructuring to explore more advanced figure/ground composition.

    • RESTRUCTURING: The next new design exercises will push students to cut across and restructure strip-pieced fabrics in an even more improvisational manner to create ever-more complex structures. Students will experiment with all sorts of cross-cuts that create new SHAPES and LINES (ELEMENTS) out of their already strip-pieced fabrics. These will be sewn together and then recut. These elements will be used in restructuring which means combining shapes and lines into new figures or configurations. Groups of configurations will be strung together or combined with other sewn structures to create increasingly complex compositions. As a result, students will become more experienced in construction and engineering techniques and more comfortable with generating ideas that promote excellent figure/ground composition.

    • Color - and the values of color from light to dark (5 steps in value) - will be emphasized in all exercises so a great selection of fabrics based on these values must be brought to this workshop. Students will be working in SOLID COLORS and graphic prints, plaids and stripes. Do not bring florals or other types of prints.

    Students must read the fabric list and supply list and come prepared. These lists are accurate!!! Note regarding the fabric lists:
    • Concentrate on collecting DARKS and MEDIUM DARKS!
    • Concentrate on collecting LIGHTS and MEDIUM LIGHTS!
    • Concentrate on collecting BRIGHTS!
    • Concentrate on collecting FLATS and GLOWINGS!
    • Concentrate on collecting PLAIDS!
    • Concentrate on collecting STRIPES!
    • Concentrate on collecting GRAPHIC GEOMETRICS!

    If students want to learn to work more effectively, more efficiently from “instincts” and “intuition” they must come with an open mind and no agendas, ready for growth and for risk-taking!
