Improvised Scrap Quilting Workshop

Jul 01, 2023 1:30PM—5:00PM


1/2 day workshop with Kevin Carr

July 1st, 1:30-5:00pm

$45 per person artist-led tour of exhibition included!

Workshop participants will be given demos on different ways to build improvised patchwork techniques and then have time in the studio to work on the various techniques.  This is a great chance to use up scraps from previous projects and add new quilting techniques to your repertoire. The tour will look at works included in the exhibition using improvised patchwork and how it can be paired with more planned quilt blocks.

About the Teacher:

Kevin Carr was born in Rochester, NY and grew up on the edge of Canandaigua Lake.  He received his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his BFA from Alfred University.  Kevin’s practice is very interdisciplinary – taking the form of quilts, paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installation.  With an emphasis on color play, material history, process, and queer aesthetics, he finds new ways to communicate love, intimacy, and exuberance.  Carr’s work has been shown nationally in Portland, St. Louis, Chicago, Gloucester, MA, and Brooklyn, NY.  He currently lives in Farmington, NY where he enjoys watching movies with his partner and two cats.
