Studio Workshops

Studio Workshops are held in Ann’s own studio in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and are designed for 3-4 participants who are ready for an intensive learning experience. Ann gives extensive detail and demonstrations that are addressed to each individual’s artistic interests and experience. Homemade lunches, drinks and snacks will be available at the studio. Ann will provide local information so participants can make arrangements for accommodations, and other meals.

Workshops for 2018 and later will be scheduled upon request after January of that year. Chose a workshop and gather a group of 4, then contact Ann to customize the workshop and to arrange dates. Tuition includes all supplies required. It will be paid in full, in advance of the workshop and is non-refundable. Should it be necessary to cancel a registration, we will make every possible attempt to fill the place.

Group & Conference Workshops

Group & Conference Workshops vary from two days to ten days. All the descriptions are general because each workshop will be designed specifically to fit the interests of the group and the advantages of the particular venue. The maximum number of students in these “hands-on” workshops is 20. If there is a need for more than 20 students, there will be an additional fee per student, per day. If a group of 10 or fewer is interested in planning a workshop, there is a slightly reduced daily fee. Contact Ann for more details and to discuss topics, number of days, fees, and classroom requirements.

Lectures

Lectures are usually forty-five minutes to one-and-a-half hour, consisting of a digital presentation with quilts and/or fabric samples. Every presentation is updated and prepared for your specific audience. All of Ann’s lectures are slide shows of her own work. They change and develop as she finishes more quilts and learns more techniques. Contact Ann for fees and if you have a particular topic, or interest, you would like her to present.

Requirements:

  • Contact Ann before the event to be sure of projection arrangements. The digital set-up that will allow a Keynote presentation from a USB flash drive, or that will allow connect correctly to Ann’s Mac laptop.
  • The projector and the room lighting should provide for good viewing quality of the images.
  • Remote control depending on the venue
  • Microphone for a large group
  • Tables for quilts and samples
  • Quilt racks if audience wants to see larger quilts

 

Seminars

Seminars are half or full day: slides, lecture, demonstration, and discussion presented to larger groups who will not expect hands-on participation. Contact Ann for fees and more details, so that it can be specifically planned for your venue.

Requirements:

  • A seating arrangement that allows all participants to see Ann’s table during demonstrations.
  • Tables for Ann, 3-5 for demo and supplies, depending on other counter space available and length of time.
  • Wall space for Ann, at least 20 linear feet of wall or other surface for samples
  • Media: some of the seminars require slides, so a digital set-up is needed that will allow me to show a Keynote presentation from a USB flash drive, or that will allow use of my Mac laptop. The projector and the room lighting should provide for good viewing quality of the images. A screen and microphone may be needed depending on the venue.
