About the Event
Zak Foster - Saturday 13 November 2021 - 4.00pm to 7.00pm (GMT)
Online Interactive Workshop: Talisman Tiny Quilt
We're absolutely delighted to announce that we’ve finally pinned (get the pun?) down American quilt artist (and now Met Gala garment-maker) Zak Foster!!! We’re jumping with joy to announce Zak's first class with CraftyMonkies. It’s been a wee while coming but, believe us, it will be so worth the wait! Not only will you learn some wonderful traditional hand-sewing techniques (as Zak describes below) but this class will also provide you with a wonderful opportunity to connect with this international artist in a really intimate and immersive space.
In this magical workshop Zak will take you on a personal creative journey as you make your ‘one of a kind’ Talisman Tiny Quilt. This class is slightly different to our other classes as we will offer you not only the chance to work and sew alongside Zak, but you'll really get to know him as an artist and learn the story behind his processes: you'll get to ask questions about his approach, the journey that got him to where he is today and gain an insight into his magical world. A truly unique three-hour experience to both savour and delight in here with CraftyMonkies!.
Introduction by Zak:-
How do we harness the power of fabric to make manifest our intentions? Great question!
In this workshop, we'll cover classic hand-sewing techniques like the running stitch, back stitch, and tailors knot. Perfect for all skill levels, we will make a small hand-sized quilt from start to finish that will teach you many of the hand-sewing skills you can use in larger quilting projects. Participants are encouraged to bring at least one item of what I like to call 'magical power'!...
