A Janome Digitizing Workshop
Lilla Rogers, one of the most successful illustration agents in the industry as well as an author, beloved e-course guru and visionary entrepreneur is putting some of her top artists with top editors and art directors so that they can work together and pitch projects. This event is called Speed Art Dating and will take place on Friday, September 25th and Saturday, September 26th in Arlington, MA.
Lilla's mantra is People Buy Your Joy and this event clearly embodies her vision. She will teach two innovative workshops; her art directors will share how to dazzle with hot pitches and the artists will pitch their ideas directly to the decision-makers.
Lilla, with her inimitable brand of wit, warmth and wisdom, will also be video streaming on Periscope - the newest live interactive video app. During the scope, she will interact with her followers while she interviews her artists as they carve block prints onto linen to make patterns. Later on, the artists will show how to digitize their artwork to make machine embroidered designs on linen.
Artists Carolyn Gavin and Suzy Ultman, who contributed to AcuDesign, will be attending the event.
Creative Retreat Itinerary:
Lilla will lead the artists in two very exciting art workshops. They will then share their results across social media as well as with the art directors attending the event.
Workshop 1: Block Printing
The artists will carve large rubber blocks and then print onto lush silks to create fresh patterns.
Workshop 2: Mod Machine Embroidery
Lilla will teach her artists how to create innovative designs using Embrilliance software that they will then stitch onto gorgeous linens with our state-of-the-art Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 machine.
Speed Art Dating
Each artist will meet with each art director for 10 minutes where they will be able to pitch their book projects or home décor collections, show new work or just chat.
Lilla and team will be live video-streaming interviews of the artists and art directors and engaging the viewers to ask questions of these inspiring folks. Watch @lillarogers on Periscope.
We hope you will participate in this wonderful event!
