Experimenting with Appliqué

Through guided gallery discussion, participants will learn about a variety of quilting techniques, including appliqué. In the studio, families will engage in a hands-on workshop that asks participants to experiment with the appliqué process, using textiles inspired by those found in the exhibition War and Pieced.
