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. She is a dedicated student and teacher of the history of these art practices and values the craftsmanship of their various technical handwork skills. Lesley graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009 with a BFA in fibers and from the Cabinet and Furniture Making program at North Bennet Street School in 2016.
