Ankara String Quilt with Lisa Shepard Stewart is on Tuesday March 29th, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm via Zoom online platform.  This workshop will cover color theory, how to create transparent effects, and how to work with complex shapes. 

The classic string quilt becomes a work of art with Ankara prints! Learn how to mix the various colors and patterns with confidence, bind your quilt using one of two easy techniques, add non-traditional fabrics to your quilt, transform the blocks beyond the wall hanging into alternate projects and more! 

Lisa Shepard Stewart is a writer and designer based in New Jersey. She offers classes and events internationally, and travels to Ghana to source artists, fabrics and materials.
