January 23, 2021 Workshop: Scrappy Playtime (Cathy Tomm)

(Teaching Grant Workshop) 

Pre-class: Monday, January 18 (7:00-8:00 p.m.)

Come join Cathy to play with your pretty scraps. Making fabric out of nothing!

She will show you how she cuts, sorts and stores her scraps in a rainbow of colour. She will then show you how to use tiny bits of fabric. You will build fabric using your precious scraps with a few poverty piecing techniques shown. The larger blocks will be based on traditional quilt blocks but will have used poverty piecing to add greater interest and texture.

Students can choose the Bouncy Ball block or a Friendship Star block (some students may have time for both blocks).

There will be a one-hour pre-class presentation to give you time to sort through your scraps before the workshop.
