What I’d really like to do…

So, here is the new plan: I really want to start doing more workshops and talks for guilds and shops (assuming anyone would have me). But that is just a start. One of the things I would really love to start doing is museum tours for quilters…

One of the favorite things to do back when I was teaching design was to do a walking design tour of the local mall in Des Moines, to really pick apart design in practice, to get behind what stores were doing and saying with their messaging. Sometimes I think more got covered and uncovered in those few hours than the rest of the semester.

If I were to come and visit a guild or a shop in a city that has a modern/contemporary art museum I could then add on a guided tour aimed towards quilters, one that would look at Modern Art with an eye out for what modern quilting can take away from it. I would love to spend a few hours with quilters getting into the ideas and context behind modern art, to really dig deep into whatever pieces are in that museum, to consider how we look at and think about modern art. Kinda like doing a shop hop, but without so much hopping and adding in some really amazing art.

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps…

Yay art and stuff!!!
