Use fat quarters or 8″ x 10” pieces of batik to create a one-of a kind pojagi project. Receive instructions for two variations.

In this class you will learn two different methods of pojagi seams and when to use them. If you struggle with not having a pattern to follow or how to start with improv piecing, working in a group will get you going. Once you start, you won’t be able to make just one – you will want to experiment with different colours and arrangements.

This is a five hour workshop.

Wednesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 26, 7:00 – 9:30 pm EST
