Lecture: “SYMMETRY & SURPRISE: THE KALEIDOSCOPE AS DESIGN INSPIRATION”
“Kaleidoscope the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of light and color, form and motion into a complex and coherent image. My goal is to harmoniously integrate the idea of a kaleidoscope with the techniques and materials of quiltmaking. I try to free myself from a conventional sense of fabric orderliness, seeking a random quality in order to imitate the succession of chance interlinkings and endless possibilities synonymous with kaleidoscopes.
I make quilts on the same block in the Bronx where I grew up. Being a New Yorker wrapped up in the fabric of city life creates an inherent paradox contrasting the traditional image of quiltmaking as part of a simple, make-do, rural way of life with my own complex urban-shaped space.” —Paula Nadelstern
- Paula will be bringing 1 yard cuts of her newest fabric collection, Wonderlust (not available in stores until January 2018) for sale at the guild meeting and 2-day workshop.
