August 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Our August lecture will be by David Taylor of Henniker, NH. David is a semi retired graphic artist who found his love of fabric at an early age. David’s unique pattern drawing technique is a very organic simple process. He begins with a photograph, enlarge it to a designated size, and then , use tracing paper to create a detailed pattern by using a smooth, easy – to – applique curved lines. He draws the pattern lines according to how the subject feels, grows or moves, and taking into consideration basic anatomy. The individual pieces of his patterns are not designated by color, rather by structure. When the pattern is complete, it looks similar to a stained glass window. He prefers a “jigsaw puzzle” approach to choosing fabrics. He enjoys searching for the perfect blending colors, and then finding the perfect spot in the fabric to cut out the missing piece.
