Examining the relationship between marquetry and quilting, this workshop offers an introduction to intarsia patterning. Taught by woodworker and quilter Lesley Gold, participants will learn the fundamentals of geometric patterning that leads to the concept of an individual quilt design through fabric piecing. Limited to 20 participants.
The Dialogue + Studio workshop series offers participants opportunities to gain insight into and engage with self-taught art, past and present, at a deep level. Focused discussions about select themes, techniques, and materials featured in current exhibitions couple with related expert-led hands-on workshops.
Lesley Gold is a full-time woodworker and quilter living in Philadelphia, PA.
