Summer Textile Classes with Julia E. Pfaff

Contemporary Mosaic Piecing for Quilting
Wednesdays, Jun 29–Jul 20, 10 am–1 pm (4 sessions)
This fast-paced class explores a spontaneous approach to traditional quilting with an emphasis on contemporary design.  Students will learn a new way to piece together quilt blocks and to create a unique arrangement of blocks. Using rotary cutting and machine piecing, students will make pillow tops or begin a quilt top. This is a great way to use scraps from other projects. Pieces will not be quilted during class, but the instructor will discuss options for students’ individual projects.

Shibori Basics Workshop

Sat & Sun, Jun 25 & 26, 10 am–4 pm (2 sessions)
This workshop teaches the fundamentals of fabric pattern dyeing using an updated method of the ancient Japanese tradition of Shibori (tie-dye). Students will use fiber-reactive dyes to add color to white fabric and a discharge chemical to remove color from previously dyed fabric. This high-energy workshop yields great immediate results. Completed fabrics are great for quilting, home decorating, and making one-of-a-kind wearables. A lab fee of $20, payable to the instructor at the beginning of the workshop, includes dyes, two silk scarves, and cotton fabric. Other scarves are available for purchase.
