Contemporary techniques – Series 2

Following on from the first series, this set of classes features more techniques for contemporary and art quilts. Rather than a collection of sample pieces, this set will come together using a quilt-as-you-go technique to make a wall-hanging depicting the changing seasons. Suitable as the next step for those who completed series 1 or an alternative starting point (series 1 is not a pre-requisite).

Contemporary techniques – Series 1

This ongoing set of classes presents a new technique each month, in an achievable A4 size format. Each technique will be demonstrated, with ideas for possible applications and hints and tips for future reference. Students will complete the piece on the day, and add it to their display folder with the class notes. In addition, there will be tips for free-motion quilting as well as different ideas for binding or finishing the work. As the class progresses, students will build a ‘toolbox’ of techniques they can apply in designing and constructing their own quilts. I hope to foster the creativity of those participating, and encourage them to try something new and step outside the square.
