Enrol in Quilting - I Have Something to Say
Course Code: ARTS2504
This course is not suitable for beginners as it is not a 'learn to quilt' class. Instruction suits confident beginners to advanced quilt makers.
Quilts are often about more than just being pretty and functional. They can make a statement. Arrive prepared to be a motivator, an activist, a troublemaker, an instigator, a supporter. Just have something to say! The role of words on quilts, from an historical and a contemporary perspective, will be examined and a variety of word-making techniques practised; including commercial patterns, improv pieced, paper pieced, stitched and printed into fabric, stencils traced for raw edge applique, trapunto and reverse applique. Create a sampler quilt using several techniques; a quilt with something to say.
