Contemporary Hand Quilting with Chloé Derderian-Gilbert
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Chloé Derderian-Gilbert
Curious about quilting, but intimidated by the scale and commitment of traditional projects? This class offers beginning stitchers the opportunity to dive into the world of modern hand quilting in an accessible format. Focusing on design, palette, and a variety of hand sewing techniques, students will design and sew their own quilted piece. But don’t let your mind stop at quilt squares! The options are endless: tool pouch, pillow case, eye mask, needle holder, and the list goes on and on. Students are encouraged to bring in their own cotton or linen fabrics to incorporate alongside the naturally dyed fabric pieces provided in class.
No previous experience necessary. Open to students 16 & up.
