We're absolutely delighted to welcome Carolina Oneto to the CraftyMonkies family for a unique and inspirational brand new class. Here's what she has to say about her fabulous Organic Shapes class: you're going to love this one!...
Introduction by Carolina:-
Organic Shapes! What can I say, they're a passion of mine! And I'm so excited to be able to share my passion with you!
Hello, I am Carolina. I’m the mother of three wonderful children; two girls and one boy, and wife of a wonderful husband. I was born in Chile in the picturesque village of Valparaíso and I've travelled and lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina (where I had the incredible opportunity of learning patchwork with Teresita Leal and Cecilia Koppman, known Argentinian quilters) and I currently live in São Paulo, Brazil, where I have my own studio, from where I am continuously creating and developing my art and teaching that WE ARE ALL CREATIVE!!!
I have always liked constantly learning and perfecting myself, every February I travel to the Quiltcon where I go to different classes, workshops and talks with known international quilters. I also studied Color Interaction with Professor and artist Eduardo Vilches in the Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile. My quilts have been exhibited in many Quilt Festivals around the world, such as Quilt Week (Paducah, Lancaster, Des Moines, Daytona Beach, Grand Rapids, Virginia Beach), Quiltcon, Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, European Carrefour do Patchwork, Fiberart International, Festival do Patchwork Gramado and Floripa Quilt Festival (both in Brazil) and my work has been featured at art centers and galleries in Europe, USA and Chile. I love to teach online quilting and design classes and I can't wait to meet you!
What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-
Have you ever struggled with curves? It can be so difficult to perfect them, especially when you use non symetrical shapes, organic shapes as I like to call them. They look stunning when used together, layer upon layer, but how do you get the best results when creating them and then sewing them together? Well, I will teach you how to do just that with your sewing machine! We will first make these beautiful shapes, along the way discussing forms, and forms that work together to create an interesting design to give you the possibility to freely piece shapes in your quilts! Let me be clear, this is not appliqué! When we have perfected this bit we will go on to learn 3 variants of these forms (one form on top of another, one form next to another and one form within another) and then I will give you ideas to inspire you in your next creations! In this class we will also discuss about composition and how when using shapes (one of the art elements ) we can create balance, contrast, focal point and movement, important principles in art. This is not just a 'learn to sew' a curve class (it's also NOT the same one as listed on my site) , this class is designed to help you understand some design principles as well as sewing techniques. Please take my own knowledge along with some things I've learned in classes I've taken from some of the best artists in the world! You can always learn something new from anyone, so even if you have taken a curve class before, I'm sure they'll be something new in this class!
