SAN BLAS APPLIQUE CLASS

The San Blas islands near Panama are home to a traditional technique called Mola, panels of which were incorporated into their clothing. Molas are handmade using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to seven) of different-coloured cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting away parts of each layer. The edges of the layers are then turned under and sewn down.
In this class you will start with your initials, or other meaningful letters to create a uniquely personal panel.

Sashiko Inspired Boro Class at Nancys
SASHIKO INSPIRED BORO CLASS

Boro is a term that describes patched and mended fabrics. Japanese boro textiles (usually clothing and bed covers) were sewn from rags and patches of indigo-dyed cotton during the 19th and early 20th century. The rural population of Japan couldn’t afford new clothing and had to literally make ends meet by patching together discarded cotton rags. Japanese families repaired and recycled everything from fisherman’s jackets to futon covers, handing them down for generations. During Japan’s industrialization in the early 20th century, the patchwork practice faded and a lot was simply thrown away as reminder of poverty and hard times. But now, almost a century later, boro have made a comeback, this time as decorative textiles.
Recycle jeans and other textiles into a panel that will be quilted with Sashiko stitching. Clare will advise on composition and will have samples to inspire you.

Small Scenes
SMALL SCENES CLASS

For all levels. In this workshop you will learn how to transform your photos or pictures of landscapes into little fabric quilts. We will be working in sizes ranging from A3 down to about large postcard size. We will discuss colours, perspective, depth of field, methods of stitching, etc. You will also learn how to enlarge pictures without the use of a photocopier. (Even if you can’t draw!) You will choose a size to work in then create 3 or 4 tiny landscapes using the same photo but making use of a variety of fabrics. You will see how different fabrics change depth of field, perspective and mood.
We will provide pictures of the type of fabric that would be suitable with the class requirements. If you dye your own fabric you may wish to use some of those.
You will be able to sew these landscapes either by hand or by machine (machine is faster!).
There will be some homework between the classes.
