Event description: Diana Robinson's workshops are designed for use in classrooms, grades K-12. She has mastered ways to teach traditional quilt designs while making room for individual, novel expression. This workshop involves designing a quilt with tonal, colored, and patterned papers, arranging contrasting elements, choosing fabrics, and creating personal adaptations of the Nine Patch or Log Cabin designs.

Teachers will learn accessible ways to teach traditional hand-sewing techniques in the classroom. Diana will demonstrate a fabric collage approach to story quilts and free-form fabric designs using fused fabrics, stitchery, and embellishments. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about quiltmaking while being surrounded by two hundred years of magnificent quilts.

About Katonah Museum of Art

The Katonah Museum of Art, through innovative exhibition and education programs, promotes the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. The Museum presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture and society -- past and present.

The Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools.
