Event description

Description

The Quilters of the Gee’s Bend made quilts from old clothes. They hold layered meaning and are celebrated as abstract masterpieces.

Over two weekends we will take these dynamic pieces as our starting point and explore composition, scale, colour, contrast, texture, placement, simple piecing, layering and hand quilting of ‘found’ cloth.

Participants should bring in previously worn garments to unpick and reassemble.

You will make a series of experimental one off pieces, a small quilt or wall-hanging.

The course aims to encourage playfulness and an experimental approach to making. It is suitable for beginners with an interest in textiles and more experienced students who may have completed the cloth collage, small quilts or cloth stories courses at Phoenix. It is part of an ongoing stitched textiles course at Phoenix but can be taken on its own.

Most materials are provided.

Students should bring: a minimum of 2 garments to unpick and repurpose (one patterned, one plain), a good pair of fabric scissors and any sewing equipment they would particularly like to use.

Costs: £160
Days: 2 weekends
Times: 10:30 - 16:30
Dates: 16, 17, 23 & 24 March
Room: Red
Maximum: 10
