Kawandi : AQC

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Kawandi are traditional utility quilts made by the Siddi community of India. Each quilt has a beautiful texture. Traditionally, they are made from sari scraps, patched and stitched together from the outer edges of a foundation piece.

This is a technique class where you will learn the art of Kawandi hand-stitching and the quilt-as-you-go method. This means that you will piece and quilt your sampler at the same time.

The Kawandi process of piecing and hand stitching is mindful and relaxing. Choosing each new fabric addition, whether a solid or print, then stitching it in place, is meditative and creative.

The expected outcome of the class is that you will complete a Kawandi sampler piece, of about 45cm (18″) square.
