5/18/19 - Brooklyn - Day-Long Dyeing Workshop and Hand-Pieced Quilting at Tatter Blue Library

  • Tatter Blue Library 505 Carroll Street Suite 2B Brooklyn, NY, 11215 (map)

In this workshop, participants will explore the extensive worlds of indigo, hand-stitching and quilt-making.

In the first part of the workshop, participants will learn to dye natural material in a plant-derived indigo vat, and learn basic shibori techniques for pattern making. Participants will then learn introductory hand- piecing techniques for creating a mini log-cabin quilt, and hand-quilting and stitching techniques to add visual interest. We will then combine their dyed fabric with naturally dyed fabric provided by me to create a hand-dyed, hand-pieced wall-hanging.

Materials provided by instructor:
· cotton fabric for dyeing
· scraps of naturally dyed material for adding color
· indigo vats and all related materials
· batting
· quilting and sashiko thread, and assorted materials
