About the course:
Kawandi are traditional quilts of the Siddi people from India, they are typically made from sari scraps patched together from the outside in.
In this one day workshop you will learn how to make your own beautiful kawandi with gorgeous patchwork prints, wovens and solids.
Stitching is very organic and relaxing, giving the finished quilt lots of texture. Picking each bit of fabric to complete your quilt can be equally meditative and challenging, like working on a jigsaw puzzle.
A class kit is provided with everything you need to complete a small 30cm quilt, ensuring you learn all the techniques to finish in one day.
That’s right, unlike regular quilts, kawandi are pieced and quilted at the same time! Making this technique perfect for a beginner quilter, if you’ve lost your quilting mojo or just need something to stitch on the move without a bunch of tools.
Your class kit includes all you need: backing, batting, fabric, 12wt Aurifil thread, needles, pins, threader, thimble and a special handmade gift from Lorena
Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are provided. Please advise of any dietary concerns!
The class is capped at 8 students, N95s will be available for anyone who wishes to wear one but please do not attend if you have any covid symptoms.
