Lectures and Workshops

I use a combination of fabric, pigments and thread, a technique I call “Pigment Patchwork”, to create my award-winning fiber art.

I have taught throughout the United States as well as internationally in Kenya, Poland and the Ukraine. And actually, using the power of technology, I have presented throughout the world!

I am happy to work with your guild or group or shop to customize or design a lecture or workshop to meet your needs. Please email me (see above) for more information or for scheduling.

Most of my lectures and workshops are now available for both live in-person or using Zoom group meetings (private and secure).  My goal is to make my virtual workshop experience as close as possible to an in-house in-person workshop.

My Zoom group workshops may include the following:

  • Live lectures and demos
  • Pre-recorded video demos via a private online classroom where students can ask questions, interact with each other share photos, etc.
  • Additional downloadable PDF project support documents where applicable
  • Live on-demand support throughout the workshop via zoom or the private online
    classroom (whichever the student prefers) for feedback, guidance, questions, etc.
  • Live wrap-up/ Q&A/ show-and-tell session via zoom at the conclusion of the workshop day.
  • Continued on-demand access to all pre-recorded video demos for 7 days after the workshop.
  • Continued project support via email for up to 30 days after the workshop. 

Lecture/Workshop Fees:

Lecture fee: $400 with up to 100 attendees, both live and via zoom. 

  • If there are more than 100 people expected then there will be an additional charge of $150 for zoom upgrade fees and an additional 200 attendee spots will be available.
  • Combined lectures with another guild are acceptable and encouraged however, both must sign the contract and designate one guild as the lead guild for all communication and technical purposes.

Workshop fees:  My workshops can be designed to meet your needs (½ day through 3 days scenarios).

  • Full day workshops – In-person or Live via Zoom $650 per day up to 20 students.
    •   $25 for each additional student up to a max of 35 students via Zoom (Live workshops: space will dictate).
  • Half-day workshop – In-person or Live via Zoom $450 per ½ day up to 20 students.
    •   $25 for each additional student up to a max of 35 students via Zoom (Live workshops: space will dictate).
  • Multiple-day workshop fees will be determined using the same rates outlined above.

Independent Study: I offer workshops or planned one-on-one time where attendees can work on their own projects with my mentoring during the scheduled time period.  This is perfect for those who have taken one of my courses and want to continue in their pigment adventures but want assistance and guidance.  I prefer to limit the size of groups to no more than four or five (4 or 5) individuals, or we can do this one-on-one. Sessions can be held either in my art studio in Emporia, Kansas, or we can plan virtual live sessions.  Contact me for details and to discuss.

Customer Reviews

“I was tentative about taking Rhonda’s class because I have no art background whatsoever.  But, I was amazed that I could produce a piece of artwork using Rhonda’s techniques that looked like I had been doing this for years.”
Jeanne B. (Colorado)
“Not knowing anything about this…I enjoyed seeing how different pigments and techniques came together to bring the project alive! With Rhonda’s help and suggestions, I did it!!”
Barb N. (Colorado)
“I was always afraid of painting and didn’t believe I could ever do anything even on paper. I was very nervous before class and was afraid not be able to cope with the pattern. But as soon as the class started and after the Rhonda’s explanations, I was so happy to start and get the result I could only dream of. Yes, I did it.”
Inna B. (Ukraine)
“The classes were spent in unforgettable atmosphere. It was fun, interesting and pure freedom of textile painting class. Everybody had opportunity to become a painter and fill confidence using pigments. These classes made a great impact in the development of art quilting in Ukraine…”
