Tell your story through the creation of your own story quilt in this workshop led by internationally recognized fabric artist Tina Williams Brewer. With her work as a story quilt creator, Tina explores African American history and the personal experiences associated with it. She uses symbolism, textile and fabrics to create story quilts that are motivated by issues focusing on family, women and children, and the spirituality of her culture.

At this special workshop (appropriate for both beginners and seasoned quilters alike), Tina will lead you through techniques that utilize a combination of image transfers and layering of materials. Please bring your sewing machine if you like, but these small quilts can also be sewn by hand. The Museum will have a selection of materials on hand, but you are also welcome to bring your own materials to make your quilt more personal.
