Lisa Binkley – In the Boro Spirit

$250.00

Description

In the Boro Spirit

Boro mending, kantha cloth, the Quilts of Gee’s Bend. Each of these evokes images of old, worn fabrics, simply but beautifully stitched out of need and worn fabrics. Born of necessity in diverse cultures worldwide, contemporary fiber artists can learn much from these traditions both technically and aesthetically. In this workshop we explore the traditions that created these textiles and then look to them for inspiration in creating new works of fiber art.

Beginning with pieces of old fabrics—vintage linens, pieces of worn jeans, even bits of blankets

or tattered garments—we select, curate, layer, and hand stitch them into new looks and new life.

Techniques explored include non-traditional hand piecing and applique, hand quilting with

heavier threads, as well as design considerations in creating our compositions. This five-day

workshop is a meditative blend of history, hand work, repurposing, and art making.

This class is suitable for all levels of fiber artists. The $25 class fee covers the detailed color

booklet that will be provided to students on the first day of class as well a variety of fabrics and

some threads.
