Berry Quilting Retreat “Bowled Over”

Ali George will be demonstrating and exhibiting bowls, nests and baskets made from “stuff”.

This two day workshop involves recycling and repurposing materials that you already have at your disposal – except that it’s been difficult if not impossible to let them go from your stash or collection. Participants will learn to use threads, wool, fibres, scraps of thread and fabric and textile pieces to create unique and unusual bowls or nests. This is also a great opportunity to use up threads, especially anything in the “what was I thinking?” category.

Using cotton cord, participants will learn several ways to cover or wrap the cord and create sturdy and functional bowls. Scraps of thread and silk pieces or trimmings will be converted to delicate nests that can be embellished to create small, stand-alone art objects. Fabric trimmings can be converted to cord and again, make interesting bowls or nests. Balls of twine, wool and other fibres make interesting and functional objects. It’s the most fun to be had with creating something new and useful from “stuff” you mostly had!


Note: WORKSHOP COST The cost of the 2 day workshop is $280 and includes Lunch and  Morning and Afternoon Teas.
