Rag Quilting Workshop
February 9, 2019
10:00 am – 12 noon

Join Sharon Cooper-Murray, the Gullah Lady, for a lecture and hands-on workshop about the folk art tradition of rag quilting. Dating to the antebellum period, feed and grain sacks were combined with rag strips to make these unique quilts. Traditionally passed from generation to generation, Cooper-Murray was taught the process by Gullah women from Wadmalaw and Johns Island. She has since set out on a mission to preserve this disappearing art form. Join a fascinating workshop to learn more about this traditional craft and start your own project!  Each participant should bring their own scissors. All other materials are provided by the instructor.

Registration is required and space is limited. Click here for more information and to register.
