Beginning with pieces of old fabrics, especially those with personal meaning – vintage linens, pieces of worn jeans, even bits of blankets or tattered garments –we select, curate, layer, and hand stitch them into new looks and new life.
Techniques explored include non-traditional hand piecing and applique, hand quilting with various weights of threads, inclusion of repurposed embellishments such as shirt buttons and beads from old jewelry, as well as design considerations in creating our compositions. This workshop is a meditative blend of history, hand work, upcycling, and art making. This class is suitable for all levels of fiber artists.
