At 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, the Glendale Quilt Guild will feature a lecture by Larkin Jean Van Horn entitled "If One is Good, Twenty is Better."
Larkin makes garments, art quilts, bead embroidery and art for the church that emanate from her bold imagination, her love for the vast array of textile products from around the world, and her strong sense of drama.
Her art is truly that of the Pacific Northwest, and has been displayed and won honors both regionally and nationally.
Glendale Quilt Guild meetings are the second Wednesday of each month at Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard. The meetings are free to members. Non-member fee is $5. For information call 882-9702 or visit www.glendalequiltguild.org.
On Jan. 14, Larkin Jean Van Horn will lead a workshop entitled "Beadwork for Fabric Artists."
This course covers all the basics of bead embroidery, as well as some edge stitching, fringe and design considerations. Larkin's class will stimulate the creativity of each student. Since each student brings different experiences to their work, they will finish the class with pieces that are uniquely their own. Larkin will share her unique perspective and techniques, as well as encourage individual expression and exploration.
