Make a sustainable party garland.


Would you like to hang up your homemade garlands every (party) day to celebrate life? Garlands that tell your story or honour the memory of specific people or events. By making a garland with this precious textile, those persons or events will always remain a little bit with you.


During this workshop, you will delve into the art of crafting flags using diverse fabrics. Explore various quilting techniques, master the art of storytelling through textiles, delve into pattern work, practice hand sewing, achieve seamless finishes, and more.


At the end of the workshop, you will go home with the beginnings of your flag line and enough materials and inspiration to continue!


Do you have textiles at home that you want to make flags from? Then bring it along so Rianne can get you started! There will be plenty of saved textiles for all participants anyway.


With Kick Ass Quilts, Rianne brings a new dimension to the craft of quilting: namely, that of ‘Quilting for a sustainable future where everyone has a meaningful and enjoyable life’. For this, quilting’s tradition of reuse, quilting together, creative expression, and storytelling is combined with modern techniques, designs and issues. She believes that quilting has an important role in bringing back the value of textiles and the value of creating with your hands, making meaningful objects that are cherished for a long time. And that, in turn, is good for the planet because sustainability is largely about enjoying more and consuming less.


Kick Ass Quilts is actively developing and sharing a modern, sustainable quilting approach through its studio in Almere at the Upcyclecentrum. This site collects and processes domestic waste separately, providing a substantial stream of household textiles for our creative endeavours. Collaborations with Restore, a circular crafting centre in Ede (NL), and generous donations further enrich our textile sources.
