Quilting Workshop

Desmond Miller’s textile-based art workshop invites us to think more deeply about the connections between garments, quilting and the African Diaspora. Discover idiosyncratic styles of quilting and patchwork from across peoples, times and places in the African Diaspora. Learn how to sew a 30cm x 30cm quilt block, and explore quilting as a powerful medium for memory, meaning making, community building and self-care.


Made possible with the support of Nia Centre for the Arts, the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, the United Way of Greater Toronto & York Region (United Way) and Textile Museum of Canada.
