NEW* Advanced Beginner: Nesting Canvas Bowls Workshop

In this workshop you’ll make one canvas bowl.

Canvas bowls are a great way to use up fabric scraps from your stash, or a good excuse to snip into some new fat quarters!  Using an improvised approach, participants will piece together fabric panels that contrast with the modern, minimal aesthetic of unprimed canvas.

The canvas bowls are not only good looking, they are a great storage solution for just about anything, and will help you achieve your new year's resolution to be more tidy. Thanks to heavy interfacing and boxed corners, these bowls will retain their crisp shape and sit proudly on your shelves.

Participants will leave with illustrated instructions describing how to make a complete set of three nesting bowls and enough canvas to make the small and large sized bowls on their own.

Skills:  Using a rotary cutter, improvised piecing, applying interfacing, and boxing corners.

Supply List:

Note: The supply list is based on making 1 medium sized bowl during the workshop.

 

3 coordinating fat quarters.  Recommended fabrics include:  Canvas, Japanese linen canvas blends, and medium weight quilting cottons.  NOT recommended:  Double gauze, voile, very light weight materials or anything with stretch. 

Bring some scraps from your stash to mix and match with your fat quarters.
1.5 meters of 24" wide interfacing
Provided by workshop:
1.5 meters of 60" wide 10 oz or 12 oz (heavy) unprimed painting canvas which is enough to make a set of 3 nesting bowls.
