To celebrate our collaboration with The Mall, fiber artist Steph Granillo is going to show you how to quilt.

Tickets for this workshop are $10 and every cent will benefit community initiatives we care about.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIS WORKSHOP

Do you have tote bags and t-shirts lying around? Bring new life to these items while learning how to quilt and applique with Steph.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of hand-quilting, and you will use these skills to update old items with playful patchwork.

Here’s what you need to bring:

✰ Items from your home and closet that you’d like to refresh
✰ Yourself! Steph will also have extra tote bags and t-shirts for participants to use. All other materials are provided, and no previous sewing or quilting knowledge is needed to join!

Steph Granillo (she/her) is the Austin-based artist and improvisational quilter behind Thread and Foil. All of her quilts are created with the goal of being sustainable; her most commonly used textiles include clothing and retired household linens that are stained or damaged in a way that would otherwise lead them to a landfill. She finds inspiration in playful color palettes, bringing new life to discarded textiles, and in rethinking what a quilt can be. When she is not quilting, Steph can be found playing with fused glass, making waffles, and trying to identify all the birds that visit her garden.
