This workshop will meet for one three-hour session per week for three weeks and is perfect for beginning or intermediate quilters. Students will make a quilt top approximately 36” x 36”, learning several ways to construct half-square triangle blocks. Depending on fabric choice, this can be a beautiful wall hanging or even a great baby quilt. Students will also learn how to resize the block for use in other quilt designs.
A sewing machine in good working condition is required. Don’t have one? Don’t worry. Stecoah Valley Center has some machines available in the Textile Studio. When you register, let us know if you need to reserve one. A supply list will be provided after paid registrationo bring to class will be provided with paid registration.

Instructor: Rena Magolnick
Tuition: $55 (includes dye supplies)
Come have fun playing with color & pattern. We will dye fabric with fiber reactive dyes using resist techniques to create interesting patterns including direct application, low water immersion, Shibori (the origin of tie dye) and soy wax batik. Techniques will be demonstrated & there will be ample time for students to experiment. Any natural plant fiber can be dyed with these dyes --- cotton, linen, rayon, bamboo, silk. There are no mistakes, only 'happy accidents'.
The instructor will provide the dyes & auxiliary chemicals needed and a list of resources to help you on your way to further experimentation. A list of materials for students to bring to class will be provided with paid registration.
Class size minimum 3 students, maximum 6.
