Conscientious creativity is at the forefront of this class, featuring both printmaking and the fiber arts. Patchwork, a timeless method of waste-free creation utilizing fabric scraps from worn clothes, linens, and other textiles, may have fallen to the margins in an age of consumerism and abundance. Participants in this class will appreciate the meditative, slow-making and care of patchwork, while simultaneously energizing their designs with new and unique printed patterns.
Print & Patch students will learn different methods of textile surface design, carve their own printmaking blocks, and print personalized patterned fabric. In the latter part of this 8-week class, members are invited to share the fabric they created with each other, as they begin construction of a hand-sewn patchwork bag or mini-quilt project. Participants will take home handmade creations that celebrate community and the renewable spirit of patchwork.
This class is well suited for those without previous print or textile experience, as well as makers with knowledge of some or both methods looking for a new way to approach fiber arts. All materials and tools are provided for participants, including printmaking blocks, fabric, and sewing tools.
