Creative Fridays: Make Your Own Masks with Daisy Aschehoug
September 4, 2020 @ 17:30 - 19:00 CESTNOK300
On this Creative Friday, Daisy Aschehoug, Founder of Warmfolk, will be facilitating a session of mask making. Daisy has researched the best design for masks to protect you and your loved ones. All materials will be provided, but if you would like to use your own fabric, bring two pieces 20cm x 20cm (8in x 10in) for the exterior and interior of the mask. Fabric should be woven cotton, not knit or jersey. Elastic will be on hand but you are also welcome to bring your own.
Daisy Aschehoug lives in Nesodden, Norway. She grew up among sewing machines and fabric, but it wasn’t until her thirties that she finally asked her mother to teach her to sew. Quilting offered an opportunity to combine her new love for sewing with all of the art classes that she had taken throughout her life. She discovered a passion for selecting fabrics to incorporate into traditional and modern quilt patterns.
Daisy has been making quilts since 2010 and designing quilts for magazines since 2016. She is most passionate about the art of modern traditionalism and incorporating curved piecing into utility quilts. She is a member of the Modern Quilt Guild and the Studio Art Quilt Associates.
She has a masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana and spent several years in the United States helping federal and state governments work with communities to develop best practices for managing natural resources. Now that Daisy is fully immersed in designing, making, and teaching the art of quilting, she’s excited to explore how the resources used her craft can reflect socially and environmentally sustainable practices.
