"Boro-Inspired Wearable Art"
March 23-25, 2023
 

Boro mending, kantha cloth, the Quilts of Gee’s Bend. Each of these evokes images of old, worn fabrics, simply but beautifully stitched for a new purpose. In this workshop we explore the traditions that created these garments and then look to them for inspiration in creating new works of wearable fiber art. Beginning with pieces of old and/or beloved fabrics—vintage linens, pieces of worn jeans, even bits of blankets or tattered garments—we select, curate, layer, and hand stitch them into new life as a work of wearable art. This workshop is a meditative blend of history, hand work, repurposing, and art making. This class is suitable for all levels of fiber artists, but some hand stitching experience is required.
