Over the course of five weeks they will be introduced to various metal-working techniques which, in combination with textile techniques will enable the creation of a large scale Metallic Quilt.
The finished quilt will be mounted on the exterior of the building housing the REclaim/REpurpose exhibition of international contemporary craft and applied art from 1—31 August.
