Workshops

At this webpage you will find an overview of all workshops that are taught during the Open European Quilt Championships 2015.

Character of the workshops at OEQC 2015:
The character of the workshops during the Open European Quilt Championships as you know it, will change in 2015. There will be several short classes instead of full-day programmes. During these short workshops you will make a small project or learn a specific technique. This makes it easier to combine participation in a workshop with your visit to the exhibition and the shops.

Tickets for the workshops are currently only available at the info desk of the MECC

Sur cette page vous trouverez un aperçu des différents ateliers que nous vous proposons.

Thèmes des ateliers durant l’OEQC de 2015:
En 2015, nous avons changé notre manière de concevoir les ateliers. En effet, il y aura plusieurs ateliers de courte durée plutôt que des workshops d’une journée. Pendant ces ateliers, vous ferez un petit projet ou approcherez une technique particulière. De cette façon, vous pourrez organiser votre visite et combiner ateliers, visite de l’exposition et des magasins.

Les billets pour les ateliers ne sont actuellement disponibles au bureau d’information de la MECC

Zentangle basically means that one spontaneously fills in different surfaces with all kinds of fantasy motifs. Usually this is done in black and white. During this workshop you use coloured pieces of fabric on a white or cream paper surface as a starting point. You draw on a postcard to further examine this technique. Afterwards you can apply elaborated freemotion quilting on the small sandwich at home. You will receive the necessary instruction to do so. The aim of this workshop is to let people discover that drawing spontaneously is not difficult.

Learn the Korean quilt technique Pojagi – Marielle Huijsmans

There aren’t three layers of fabric, but there is transparency. Not only the blocks but the seams too play an important part in the design. The designs consist of geometric shapes.

You can apply this old technique to modern projects.

Punch quilting: Apply punching in quilts – Marian Verdonk

Punching is painting with fabric, without water, glue or thread being involved. Punch is characterized by its own weathered effect. You change the look of fabrics, it wrinkles into beautiful textures. Punch is almost indispensable when working on artquilts. However, it can be applied in more structured quilts too. In the workshop we will work with different techniques and materials. We make three small panels which can later be applied in a quilt. In the first panel we work with transparent and non-transparent materials so we can create layers. In the second panel we work with wool and leather and learn how to lead the punch process. In the third panel we let reliefs arise. At the end of the workshop you will learn how these panels can be used in a quilt. The material package you will receive contains fabrics, wool and a punch needle so you can continue to work at home. More information can be found at www.punchworkshops.nl

You can attend this workshop on Friday 30.10.2015 and Saturday 31.10.2015 at 1 pm.
