Wednesday Morning Workshop. 29 March: Quilting
Quilting is a decorative needlework technique, which involves sewing two or more layers of cloth together to create a thicker, often decorative form. There are many types of quilting, including flat quilting (two layers) and textured quilting, such as trapunto, piped quilting and of course the famous bed quilts that combine patchwork, applique and quilting techniques. As usual with the Wednesday morning workshops, the theoretical and visual will be combined with the practical.
The workshop will include a lecture describing the general history of quilting and the main types, while on display will be examples from Europe, America, as well as Iran and India. The workshop will include basic level sewing and pattern techniques based on flat level forms (kantha) from India, and three layer forms (with wadding) from the West. The workshop will be given by Lies van de Wege, one of the TRC staff. Please register well in advance.
