Friday, May 21, 2021: David Owen Hastings – Indi-Go-Modern Workshop
THIS IS A LIVE, ONLINE CLASS TAUGHT ON THE ZOOM PLATFORM
The lure of indigo is strong — the classic blue and white combination found in many Japanese textiles is cool, crisp, and so appealing. From classic kimonos to denim jeans, indigo has been used by many cultures for dyeing cloth, and the Japanese have refined the use of indigo to an art form. This is the class to use all those lovely blue and white shibori fabrics you’ve dyed yourself, or use carefully curated blue and white fabrics from your stash. Each participant will develop a simple geometric block design based on unfolded origami shapes, set a theme and create variations, and combine them into the beginning of a fresh and modern mini quilt top.
A required $10 kit fee will be payable directly to David. You will receive a link to his website when the kits are available. An optional blue and white fabric kit is available that includes vintage Japanese yukata cotton prints (price to be determined)
The class runs from 9:30 AM-4:00 PM Eastern Time with a 1/2 hour break for lunch. The Zoom classroom opens at 9:00 AM and students should be online by 9:15 AM.
Registration opens December 1 for active GAAQG Members only.
