Knitting as Protest is the second of three workshops Aneesa Shami will be conducting during her studio residency at the Helms Design Center. This hands-on workshop will include historical background on knitting as craftivism (e.g., the recent Pussyhat project), and guide participants through techniques to create a classic garter-stitch scarf.

Modern Hand Quilting Workshop

Modern Hand Quilting is the final workshop in Aneesa’s Residency series. We’ll cover a brief history and evolution of quilting, with a focus on Wartime quilts, Modern quilting, and Art Quilts, with a brief insight into Appalachian/Rocky Mountain quilts and the Gee’s Bend phenomenon. Participants will then create a “micro-quilt” (approximately the size of one’s hand). Previous sewing experience is a plus, but not needed. More details via the button below.
