Documentary Story-Quilter Joan Gaither, whose work has been shown in numerous museums across Maryland and nationally, is offering two Hands-On Workshops this spring on how to get started with Documentary Story-Quilting. The workshops include a short PPT presentation, a workshop session and materials.
Read more about Joan in this article from the February 15th issue of Bay Weekly.
According to article author Prue Hoppin: “No experience required is the message at Gaither’s quilt-making workshops. People come with words, photographs and mementos. She brings ink jet printers, scissors, markers, boxes of embellishments and inspires her quilters to capture memories and stories on fabric. Sewing is done with large needles and simple stitches.”
More articles and videos about Dr. Gaither’s work can be found on her Facebook page.
Four Rivers Heritage Area is one of the sponsoring organizations. The workshops will be held at the Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center, 1101 Smithville Street, Annapolis. Each night, 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Each session has a $15.00 cost to cover materials.
