About the course:

Kawandi are traditional quilts of the Siddi people from India, they are typically made from sari scraps patched together from the outside in.

In this one day workshop you will learn how to make your own beautiful kawandi with gorgeous patchwork prints, wovens and solids.

Stitching is very organic and relaxing, giving the finished quilt lots of texture. Picking each bit of fabric to complete your quilt can be equally meditative and challenging, like working on a jigsaw puzzle.

A class kit is provided with everything you need to complete a small 30cm quilt, ensuring you learn all the techniques to finish in one day.

That’s right, unlike regular quilts, kawandi are pieced and quilted at the same time! Making this technique perfect for a beginner quilter, if you’ve lost your quilting mojo or just need something to stitch on the move without a bunch of tools.


Your class kit includes all you need: backing, batting, fabric, 12wt Aurifil thread, needles, pins, threader, thimble and a special handmade gift from Lorena

Morning and afternoon tea are provided. Please advise of any dietary concerns!

The class is capped at 12 students.

Please do not attend if you have any covid symptoms.

Attended th e Kwandi workshop by Lorena at Fabric Garden at Neutral Bay in November 2023 and enjoyed every moment. Lorena is a great tutor and happy to pass on her knowledge. The workroom at Fabric Garden is ideal and the lunch was soooo good. Highly recommended.

Fabulous workshop

I had a lovely day learning a new technique of piecing and hand sewing fabric with like minded people. The teacher was very inspirational. The lunch and morning tea were brilliant additions as well.

My mum and I did this class together and both thoroughly enjoyed it. Lorena provided a lovely lunch and expert and patient instruction to all in the group (with varying levels of experience). I would highly recommend investing in this enjoyable day.

Alison - so glad you and your mum enjoyed the course! Sue
