TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning
Gathering at the TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning on Sunday, December 6th from 10 am to 5 pm, students will come together to design and create a small art quilt of their own design. Our Workshop will be in the Activity Room on Level 1. All levels of experience are welcome.
Using Creative Design Play - students will gather to use their own hand-dyed INDIGO fabrics (or fabric of their choice) to make an art quilt... no experience required.
Bethany will share her own art quilt samples that use Indigo dyed fabrics and inspire the students in the class to create a design that is simply fun to put together in one day. Students may have been in class with Beth on December 5th, dyeing their cloth - or may have attended a previous Indigo Dye Class at the TETT and are ready to turn their fabric samples into a wall or tabletop quilt for themselves or as a gift!
Students will bring their own cloth, threads, favourite sewing supplies including scissors and rotary cutting equipment if they have it (a rotary cutting station will be available in the classroom), and their sewing machine/extension cord or power bar for this play day. Hand piecing is a welcome alternative. You choose!
A supplies list will be shared via email with registered students before the workshop.
Please note that we at the TETT are working consistently to ensure the safety and health of our students: ensuring that our classrooms allow for safe self-distancing, by requiring that masks be worn inside the classroom, hand sanitizers are furnished and we are following the Kingston Frontenac Health Unit regulations for tracking student participation and maintaining contact tracing information.

AND - please come stitch with us even if you do not have Indigo Dyed fabrics - the project is YOUR choice and the workshop time you will share with us is all about what you have to work on, and need/want to create... everyone welcome and YOUR projects are exciting and WE want to see!

RETREAT DAYS at the TETT Centre September 25 and 26th - an opportunity for eight stellar art enthusiasts to come together for a live, two-day sewing and stitching escape into the world of art!! I am sharing a bit of the fun and accomplishment with you here...
The room was opened into one-half of the TETT downstairs Arts Gallery, which meant that we had tons of room space for self-distancing and each of the stitchers had room to work, breathe and remain safe under the Kingston Frontenac Health Unit protocols that are in place. Thanks to Tett Staff for assisting with the extra space allocation!
A commitment to wearing their face masks all day for 6 hours straight both days was a requirement and the artists who were working together in this Retreat were bold, committed, and did just that! We shared lunchtime out of doors, and we had some great conversations over the work tables that included how we are each managing through this difficult time. Most agreed that having the peace and joy of hand and machine work to fill some of our days is a blessing.
I have not enjoyed a retreat more than this session - and look forward to seeing all eight of these artists again one day soon!
