This workshop focuses on the study and application of one of the basic elements of design - LINE.  Dramatic or understated, frantic or languid, LINE can be the focus of a composition or a solid supporting player.  Students will learn how to incorporate and manipulate line to tell a story.  We will create directly in fabric using machine piecing.   Group and individual discussions will be an important part of this class.
