CLOTHES TO QUILTS Workshop by LUKE
Free for LAQS sponsors, entrants, exhibitors and ticket holders - limited class size!
Why do laundry when you have scissors? Bring two shirts and a pair of pants (check out a thrift store if you don't want to use your own), and we will take the clothing or our own stash of fabrics and work organically to create a small quilt top. LUKE will walk the class through a series of steps that will deconstruct and reconstruct fabric into something greater than the sum of its parts. we will be working with abstract forms and learning how to harness fabrics that may be a little outside of the normative quilting oeuvre.
WHAT TO BRING:
Two matching garments or pieces of fabric, 1/2 yard or bigger;
A contrast fabric, 1/4 yard or bigger;
Ruler, 2' or longer;
A cutting mat and rotary cutter;
YOUR OWN MACHINE, if you prefer to use it
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
A limited number of machines, mats and cutters
Irons and boards
Some fabric to rummage through
There will be a lunch break and box lunches will be available on site for $12.
