British Textile Biennial 2019: Community Quilting Workshops at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery

Throughout the British Textile Biennial, project manager, Emma Sumner ran a series of  katab quilting workshops inviting participants to make their own katab patch which would form part of a new Blackburn Community Quilt, which, once completed, would be accessioned into Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery’s collection.

All participants had to make their katab patches using the same hand sewing techniques that all of the project’s artisans use to make their quilts . Below are a few images from the workshops and the final finished quilt.
