Community Quilt | Textiles 5 | PM Ages 12-16

Students will collaborate on a class project to tell their collective story through a large-scale textile work. The making of the class quilt will use traditional as well as found materials, and children will be encouraged to expand on the form by developing their own motifs and patchwork patterns. Quilts have long been an ideal medium to weave together family histories, record personal triumphs, share ideas or at times, even hide secret maps in plain sight as they hung on clotheslines to dry.

Ages 12-16
