This workshop will be the perfect opportunity to bring your quilting plans to life! Have you been wanting to add a beautiful quilted throw pillow to your living room, or bring a quilted tote bag with you to the market? Maybe you have been thinking about some quilted stockings, or a quilted table runner to dress up your holidays this year? This workshop will be a space to bring any of these ideas (or more!) to life in a supportive and knowledgeable space. You will learn how to bring fabrics together to create your vision, while also learning historic piecing, planning, and construction quilting techniques. Knowledge of hand or machine sewing is helpful, but we will go over basic stitching techniques in the workshop.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Caroline Silverman

Caroline Silverman is an interdisciplinary artist who focuses on the intersection of object, narrative, and context. Working predominantly with textiles, her work explores how the soft things that people live with reflect the realities and records of their experiences. In the process of exploring what draws people to their objects, she has made quilts, writing, embroideries, tools, poetry, garments, books, and paintings to help her better understand this relationship. In her work she contemplates how these objects are often made with the intention to provide comfort and protection, and strives to extend these gestures to her collaborative work and teaching. Caroline’s recent research has delved into the tactile and intimate relationship between textiles and the body, specifically looking at quilts and embroidery as an extension of memory and embodied experiences. She thinks this relationship is particularly important to consider in analog and digitized ways. Caroline lives and works in New York City, and travels often to Providence where she teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design.
