9. Quilting Workshop by Working Cloth
Sunday 28th May, 10.00-12.00 In this Quilting Workshop with Lauren MacDonald, you will learn how to stitch together quilt layers entirely by hand. Quilts are made up of a top layer (usually patchwork), a middle layer (fluffy wadding), and a bottom layer (usually plain fabric or simple patchwork). During the session you'll be working with "whole cloth" samples, meaning the top layer is made of a single, simple piece of cloth instead of patchwork. You'll learn how to prepare these layers, mark your lines to quilt, quilt the layers together, and finish the edges of your sample by hand. Lauren will be combining textile history and culture with practical skills, no knowledge of patchwork is needed. Lauren MacDonald is a multidisciplinary designer, researcher, and founder of the textiles studio Working Cloth. She has a background in material culture, textile science, and fashion, and her practice is focused on traditional textile handcrafts. Her first book In Pursuit of Color: From fungi to fossil fuels: uncovering the origins of the world's most famous dyes will be out in July 2023. The workshop is open to a maximum of 14 participants (age 15+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £65. Location: STORE STORE, 154 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0JU, London STORE STORE is a shop and educational space. We run Public Workshops and free After School Clubs for state school students in design, art and fashion.
