About this event

Schedule: Saturdays, 12:30- 3:30 pm Dates: March 9- March 30 (4 sessions) In this intensive workshop, we will ask how quilts can be seen as books. Using inspiration from The Embodied Press (recent exhibition at Kala), graphic novels, old quilts, and our own lives, we will design and create quilts using fabric spray paint and stencils. We will finish these personal quilts over three sessions. Join us at Kala and create dynamic works of art while diving into the creative process! Session One: Review / Who is this for? – The Embodied Press images, graphic novel examples, and old quilts. – Hands-on: Divide quilt tops into “pages” and spray paint background/scenery Session Two: Stencil Work – Design & create quilt pages using spray paint -Optional: Text, and incorporate personal fabric Session Three & Session Four: Quilting Bee – Learn how to tie your quilt and complete the project Artist Bio: Cordy Joan (they/them) is a white, queer artist and educator currently living in Berkeley/Oakland. They find that quilts and the broader field of textiles are the best doorways into asking some of the hard questions about what it means to be alive right now. How have fabric objects across time and culture helped people become more human and embodied? They are particularly interested in quilts as transitional objects for queer and trans young people.
