Quilting Bee Workshop with Waterfowl Park Artist-in-Residence Andrew Wilson NOW SEPT 15September 15, 2019
This all ages workshop will be based on the traditional “quilting bee” and will involve hand sewing into the quilt sandwich (i.e. the actual quilting) in ways that continue to inscribe and embroider into the quilt the stories, identities
and many hands that come together in the quilting process—much like the waterfowl park, as a micro-environment, involves the coming together of various kinds of communities (i.e. plants, animals, the people of the town and its many visitors). The quilt frame will be set up at the visitors’ centre where people can drop in and contribute to the quilting or happen upon it if they are passing through.
