About This Workshop

Inspired by Japanese Boro and Gees Bend Quilts you will make a miniature art quilt out of scraps of material & other treasures you might otherwise throw away. The technique is very easy to learn, and fun to do as you place your scraps in different layers and orientations to create beautiful effects. Using simple hand stitches, you'll densely stitch your quilt to enhance the textures over two sessions. Take home your own unique boro-inspired miniature art quilt.

About the tutor: Sue Traylen is an experienced local textile artist who has taught several classes at Opendrawer. She is a very popular tutor for her gentle and approachable manner, and her quiet sense of fun. We particularly admire her great sense of colour & form, and are proud to feature her woven pieces for sale in Opendrawer's shop from time to time - snap them up if you see them, they don't stay long.
