Class - SJSA Community Quilt Building By Tara Faughan
1 Day Workshop - Saturday, May 23 (10am-4;30pm)
Social Justice Sewing Academy Community Quilt Building Workshop
Learn the basics of building a SJSA community quilt by working with Tara Faughnan in a free hands-on intensive community quilt building workshop. This workshop starts with a lecture exploring methods and materials for creating community quilts. From there, the students will go on to work together to piece a community quilt based on quilt blocks created by students who have participated in a Social Justice Sewing Academy workshop prior.
Tara Faughnan is a professional freelance textile designer and quilter living and working in Oakland, CA. She started to quilt around 2001 and along the way, her love of quilting led to school and a career in textile design, with clients including Michael Miller Fabrics and Pottery Barn Kids. Tara draws inspiration from the simple bold geometry of antique quilts, the gorgeous bright colors of textiles from around the world, and the freedom and spontaneity found in unconventional quilts. She uses simple geometry, complex color interaction and always strives to find the line that exists somewhere between harmony and discord.
Everyone should just bring their own sewing machine + supplies, ruler and otary cutter, pins and needles. Tara will buy the fabric from you for the quilt morning of the workshop!
