Seed Quilting Workshop

Join us in creating quilts of seeds and eco-bio materials. All the seeds we will be using were gathered on Triton College grounds. Collaborate with your community of seed hunters to construct a living, biodegradable seed quilt; learn more about the trees that surround us. Take the quilt home and plant a piece of your living art and watch it grow.

In the Seed Hunting and Seed Quilting workshops we bridge the gap between art, science, and our natural world. We will be working with the nature that surrounds us in our urban environment. 

Taught by Shilin Hora.

Saturday, December 9, 10 a.m.
