EMBRACING MYSTERY: QUILT MAKING + CYANOTYPE PRINTS
Katherine Ferrier | Sunday, September 24, 10am-6pm
$185 (includes sncks, drinks, and all materials)
In this workshop we’ll work with themes of light and dark, shadows and ghosts, and collaborations with the unknown, as we learn how to make prints on fabric using the power of the sun and the magic of cyanotypes.
We’ll take inspiration from the land, collecting shapes that call to us in the form of leaves, sticks, flowers, or feathers. We'll delight in the beauty of everyday and ordinary, as we contemplate the shapes of familiar objects and keepsakes from around our home.
Once we make our prints, we’ll use that fabric to make a small quilt/wall hanging, adding stitches as another layer of meaning. Along the way we’ll explore elements of composition, design, and embracing mistakes, all while learning the basics of quilt making.
Kits will be provided and include treated fabric to make prints, quilt batting, and backing fabric.
