Indi-Go-Modern 1 Day Virtual Workshop with David Owen Hastings (6 Hours) - Wednesday March 22nd
**DISCOUNT/COUPON CODES NOT VALID FOR PURCHASE OF CLASS FEES**
CLASSIC, COOL BLUE AND WHITE PAIRED WITH MODERN DESIGN
From classic kimonos to denim jeans, indigo has been used by many cultures for dyeing cloth, and the Japanese have refined the use of indigo to an art form. This is the class to use all those lovely blue and white shibori fabrics you’ve dyed yourself, or use carefully curated blue and white fabrics from your stash.
In this 6 hour workshop, each participant will develop a simple geometric block design based on unfolded origami shapes, set a theme and create variations, and combine them into the beginning of a fresh and modern mini quilt top.
You will start out by stitching practice blocks from blue and white paper, to explore composition using minimal, modern shapes inspired by origami. A PDF will be supplied with blue and white images of fabric, which you can print at home or at a local copy center.
You will then translate your ideas to blue and white fabric, and David will demonstrate simple pattern making using cereal box cardboard.
This is a LIVE event and will NOT BE RECORDED.
