This course is a wonderful introduction to patchwork and machine quilting hosted by Canadian textile artist Alice Tsibulsky. Each student can customize this quilt by choosing their own colour palettes, and with a touch of improv everyone’s quilt will look just a little personal and different. Students will learn all about proper cutting and assembly for the top, the best techniques for quilting on your machine, and adding a binding to make a professionally looking finished project. The quilt can for example be used as (baby) blanket, bed spread or as art piece.
Alice Tsibulsky is a textile artist with a background in cultural and environmental anthropology. She completed a Fibre Arts certificate course in Canada and has worked at a sewing studio in Toronto for several years. She likes making all different things, but lately her focus has been on hand quilting and natural dyeing as means of slowing down and enjoying the process of her craft.
Topics to cover (Patchwork):
> Assembling the top: cutting, pinning, seam allowances, pressing
> Basting quilt sandwich: top, batting, back
> Quilting (machine)
With this workshop you can choose to have the materials in- or excluded. If you choose the materials excluded you will get a little list with everything you need. You just have to purchase the materials. All tools and machines are included anyways. If you choose to have everything included you can choose between different organic fabrics. The batting we use is an soya/cotton-mix, so all materials are animal-free as well (so no wool is used).
