How the event works:

Each day will begin with a keynote presentation. On day one, fabric collage artist Leni Levenson Wiener invites you to discover the creative process that resonates with you, amplifying your message and passion. She will show you how to write effective Artist Statements and Artist Bios as you embark on a journey of self-expression. On day two, Beverly Kirk, an educator and artist specializing in storytelling and making statements with fabric art quilts, walks you through Harriet Angeline Powers’ The Bible Quilt in an in-depth how-to of the techniques used. 

After each keynote presentation, you will choose your learning adventure with two breakout sessions of workshops, each lasting between 45-60 minutes. In each session, you’ll pick who you want to see LIVE with just a click. Recordings of the other breakout rooms will be available to watch through your Creative Spark account and will never expire. 

In total, the event offers twelve workshops through six breakout sessions and two keynote presentations, all of which you have lifetime access to after the event. Those who attend the live portion of the event are entered for a chance to win various giveaways. Since Creative Spark thinks everyone is a winner, everyone gets a virtual swag bag with goodies like tip sheets, patterns, quilt labels, and coupons.
