Working with recycled textiles, Luke Haynes challenges perceptions of self-expression and redesigns environs. With cloth as his medium, he creates images that examine function, craft, and art. In this special, one-time-only event we are going to take clothing or just our own stash and work organically to create a small quilt top. Luke will walk the class through a series of steps that will deconstruct and reconstruct fabric into something greater than the sum of its parts. we will be working with abstract forms and learning how to harness fabrics that may be a little outside of the normative quilting oeuvre.
