Event description

Description

In this incredible workshop we will learn all the stages of making a simple appliqué quilt: hand appliqué, layering the quilt, Japanese sashiko hand quilting and bind and finish our quilts with mitred corners. Our designs will be bold and full of colour and we will have a chance to experiment and play. We will leave this workshop with a small quilted table mat and all the skills required to make our own full size quilt.

T A L Modern Quilts are the work of artist Tessa Layzelle. Exploring narrative and painting, translation and transformation, Tessa creates once-made patchwork and appliquéd compositions that are dyed, painted, quilted and finished by hand. With usefulness and use, the work will disappear and become part of the fabric of the everyday.

The Langwith Scott Award offers free workshops to all current students and staff at the university, all you need is an online ticket from eventbrite and a free Tuesday evening! The Langwith Scott Awards exist to promote artistic creativity of all kinds. We encourage all participants to submit their works in for the Awards. This year's theme is 'Origins'.

Workshops all take place on Tuesdays from 6:30pm – 8:30pm in The Basement in Langwith College at the University of York. The entrance to The Basement can be found on the ground floor of John West Taylor Court which is situated behind The Glasshouse. If lost or locked out please report to the Langwith Reception Porters in the centre building who will be more than happy to help.

In order to keep the workshops running we do have a penalty fee for not attending workshops that you reserve a ticket for. This figure varies per workshop is calculated by dividing the artist's fee by number of participants and adding the materials cost if there is one. If you change your mind after reserving a ticket just get in touch with the committee to free up your place again and no fee will be incurred.
