The Boro Stitch As A Brush Stroke
November 15, 2020 – November 21, 2020
Our world moves very fast. This retreat-like boro workshop will focus on slowing down and relishing in process rather than product. Students will create small compositions and use these designs to jumpstart their new work. This is not a technique workshop where you learn how to hand stitch, but how to use the stitch line as mark making on cloth, the brush strokes that make the composition complete. During class, the Gee’s Bend Quilters, and Boro and Kantha stitching practices are examined. Each day will open with a design presentation and participants will explore personal mark making preferences in groups. Supplies needed are minimal and no machines are necessary. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
