The Irish Patchwork Society has an exhibition of quilts coming up at the Cork Institute of Technology, Bishopstown, Cork. The opening is on Saturday the 4th Sept at 5:00 and the exhibition will run for one week. Laura Wasilowski (a well known Art Quilter from America) will be here to give a talk on Saturday afternoon (at 3:00) followed by the official opening. There will be demonstrations on for the day (starting at 11). All are welcome.
Moya Geraghty of Patchwork Plus and the IPS Southern Branch have organised a couple of workshops with Laura to take place on Sunday the 5th and Monday the 6th from 10 - 4 at the CIT. The cost for the workshop is €60 including the fabric kit which is to be supplied by Laura.

Tiny Homes - Workshop on Sunday 5, September
Create a little house quilt and receive a degree in Architecture from the Chicago School of Fusing at the same time! In this workshop we explore the many techniques of fusing: free cutting, layering, collage building, improvisational design, and more. The result is a whimsical neighborhood placed in a colorful landscape setting and made from beautifully hand-dyed fabrics. (No sewing machine is needed.) Please see artfabrik.com for additional requirements
Garden of Eden - Workshop on Monday 6, September
In this tempting class, create a small art quilt teeming with every flower in creation. Build a blooming garden on a green base of lush leaves, curly ferns and wavy blades of grass. Add simple daisies, jolly tulips and colorful chrysanthemums to the mix and you have a garden that Eve would envy. All from colorful fused fabrics. Directions for free cutting flowers and bias leaves and fused quilt assembly processes are covered. (No sewing machine needed.). See artfabrik.com for additional requirements
