AFRICAN AMERICAN QUILTS
Head to the southern U.S. states where quilters continue to improvise sewn patterns passed down for generations, from the times of slavery and the Underground Railroad. Along with a slide show and touchable artifacts, you’ll use math, geometry and your imagination to create a cooperative quilt and wall-hanging with up-cycled paper or fabric scraps. Display as a whole made of many parts!
Best for participants 5 years and older.
For a sewn quilt, fabric squares can be started in one workshop session, relying on you supplying fabric scraps and sewing needles. Consecutive sessions may be scheduled at an additional cost.
Best for participants 9 years and older.
