NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, April 30, 2021.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Inspired by the 6-Word Memoir project, learn to capture quick images of personal stories in quilted wall-hangings. Fusing allows students to appliqué shapes quickly, while embroidered details emphasize essential ideas. Found objects like jewelry or trinkets may also be included.

Prior to the workshop, students are encouraged to select a life anecdote to portray and to prepare their ideas by writing several very short word stories about it. For more information about the 6-Word Memoir, see www.sixwordmemoirs.com.
