Although their name conjures images of pieced fabric draped over a stall door, barn quilts are actually large pieces of wood painted to look like a single quilt block. Made up of geometric shapes in bright, solid colors, barn quilts often employ complex geometries and symbolism. In this workshop, learn about the history of barn quilts in Appalachia and create your own.

Instructor Kourtney Yelton has been teaching art in a variety of media to students of all ages for a decade. A multimedia artist, she holds both an undergraduate and a graduate degree in art education.

Presented in conjunction with Appalachia Now!
