Traditional Art Workshops

Quilt
Introductory Quilting

Join our Traditional Teacher and Knowledge Holder for an immersive and hands-on beginner quilt workshop. In this full day workshop, participants will learn the techniques for creating a larger quilt.

Quilting and the creation of quilts arrived in Canada with immigrants in the early 1600s. The Métis women embraced this art form, using scraps of fabric from old clothing.. Quilting was a practical and essential skill for creating bedding for their families.

The “quilt as you go” style is a method of quilting where each individual block or square is quilted before it is assembled with the other blocks to make the final quilt. This method allows for more flexibility in the quilting process and can be useful for creating quilts with a variety of patterns or designs, such as a wall hanging, pillow covers, or a baby blanket.

All materials required for the workshop will be supplied
