Full-Day Workshop. Skill level: All levels
A rare opportunity to spend the day with world-famous textile and colour guru’s Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably.
Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably will be taking you through the same process they use for designing their own quilts, choosing colours that work together and getting you to move out of your colour comfort zone. You will be arranging your fabric pieces on a design flannel which you will roll up at the end of the day, ready to take home and sew. For the class, you will keep your project wall-sized but it can be expanded to any size later. You will not be doing any sewing during the class.
The Quilt Style will be set by Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably approximately 6 weeks prior to the class.
You will not be told the quilt design until close to the workshop date so as to get the most out of the class by not “over-thinking” it. However, the design will be one of the quilts featured Kaffe’s latest book (typically launched in August).
The design chosen is the means for which you will explore colour. The design itself is not an important feature of the class; the class will explore colour and its impact on your compositions.
Please note that each attendee works to the same quilt design. Unfortunately, there is not an option to work on another design during the class. Seeing the same design but interpreted in many different colourways will further the learning process.
All composition will be done on a piece of neutral coloured flannel that is used as a design wall. No sewing takes place in the class. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have Design Wall Flannel already, or if you need to purchase it on the day or prior to class.
- Quilter’s Flannel for a design wall AT LEAST 45″ x 72″ (approx. 2m), in grey colour (available to purchase on the day, or in advance). If you already have this, please let us know so that we can leave wall space for you to set up your piece on the day.
- rotary cutter
- cutting mat at least 12″ x 17″
- quilt ruler at least 6″ x 12″
- optional – camera
- fabrics, but see note below
Whilst in the workshop you are encouraged to use any fabrics you would like to, including but not limited to, Kaffe Fassett Collective Fabrics. You are welcome to bring as many or as few fabrics with you to the workshop as you wish however, space is limited, so bear this in mind when packing for your visit!
You will likely want to purchase some fabrics during the day. Our standard minimum cut for all fabrics in the warehouse is 1/2m, however, for those attending Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably workshops, you may purchase in smaller lengths (min. 1/4m) as this will give you a greater variety to enjoy the class even more.
Our past experience is that you often change your perceptions of what you would like to put in your quilt after having spent time working with Kaffe and Brandon. With this in mind, Kaffe and Brandon do not recommend that you cut your fabrics prior to the class.
Coffee and tea will be served from 9.30 am onwards until the class commences. You will have an opportunity to look around our Warehouse and purchase fabric and supplies prior to the class, during and afterwards. We offer a tab system during the day to be settled at the end of the class.
Please note workshops do not include lunch. Remember to bring a packed lunch with you or alternatively there is Gregg’s cafe and a Subway close by, as well as Tesco’s.
