Workshops/Lectures/Seminars by Ann Johnston
• WATCH for 2014 studio workshops announcement the first week of January 2014
> Ann Johnston Studio Workshops, 2013 Join Ann in her own studio in Lake Oswego, Oregon, for fabric dyeing and quilt design workshops. To insure maximum individual attention to each person’s artistic interests, there will be only 4 participants in each of the 2013 classes. Arrangements for room, breakfast and dinner will be made by each person for themselves and informal lunches will be provided at the studio.
> Group & Conference Workshops vary from two days to ten days. All the descriptions here are general because each workshop will be designed specifically to fit the interests of the group. The maximum number of students in these “hands-on” workshops is 20. If there is a need for more than 20 students, there will be an additional fee per student, per day. If a group of 10 or fewer is interested in planning a workshop, there is a slightly reduced daily fee.
> Lectures consist of a digital presentation with quilts and/or fabric samples as needed. Every presentation is updated and prepared for your specific audience.
> Seminars both three and six hours, are designed for up to 40 participants. Ann tailors the presentation to the interest and suggestions of the organizers. A seminar consists of demonstration and explanation of dye and design processes. There is no “hands-on” use of dyes or sewing machines by participants.
Please > contact Ann for current fees.
