Use recycled lath and barn quilt techniques to create a rustic piece of art.

Barn quilts have become a rural North American folk-art tradition. A simple picture created from salvaged lumber. Typical scenes depict flags, geometric quilt patterns or landscapes.

GB Arts has developed this workshop to recreate barn quilts in miniature using salvaged lath. Participants will learn the basics of cutting, painting and assembling a star pattern. The skills acquired in the workshop can be used to continue your own exploration of this picturesque folk art style.
