Sheena Norquay will be giving her talk “My Work and the Orkney Influence.
She will show how the landscapes, seas and skies of Orkney have influenced her work.
She is also interested in using quilted lines to create graceful movement, sculptural shapes and decorative patterns. Inspiration comes from relief sculpture, circles, patterns in nature, man made patterns and decoration on other textiles. Most of the lines are free machine quilted, a technique which is my specialty. It is fascinating how the surface of the quilt comes alive with the quilting.
Although she uses free machine quilting in most of her work, the work shop that will take place on the 3rd April is hand quilted. The workshop is entitled“Winter Landscapes”. See Below
