Shared Stories/W2A Workshop – Upcycle Old Fast Fashion into Crazy Patchwork

Tue 2 May at 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

During National Trust Heritage Festival, May 2023, Eskbank House Museum is hosting a Waste2Art Crazy Quilting two-part workshop. Participants will create Shared Story squares by upcycling old Fast Fashion items.
This two-part workshop is facilitated by multi-disciplined contemporary artist Willowa Anna Carter and is aimed at family or close friend pairs, working together to transfer Shared Stories into crazy patchwork. Images and letters will be printed onto fabric as templates for hand stitched and embroidered squares. One square from each pair will be used to create cushions for Eskbank House Museum’s Mary’s Garden benches as a community project.
Crazy Quilting Workshop is subsidized by Lithgow City Council, the workshop cost is $25 per person. Places are limited and bookings essential via email to eskbank.house@lithgow.nsw.gov.au
