Depending on the fabrics you choose you can create oriental or contemporary 3-dimensional quilts. The designs are innovative quilt patterns inspired by Japanese sashiko and origami techniques. We will make beautiful origami blocks using Kumiko Sudo's book Fabled Flowers with Rami's easier, revised techniques. Rami will also show how to assemble beautiful blocks to create wonderful 3-D quilts or pillows.
Rami Kim is a DNA scientist-turned fabric artist / quilter / instructor known nationally and internationally. She is an 11-time Best of Show winner, distinguished for her innovative art-to-wear.
Her passion is in contemporary art-to-wear, quilts, cloth dolls and bags with special interest in 3-dimensional textures and she is known for her own distinctive colors and techniques. Her new book, Folded Fabric Elegance, published by AQS, is about her 3-D texture techniques and new projects.
She graduated from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) majoring in endocrinology and worked at the Cancer Research Institute at UCSF before her passion and talent in fabric art drastically changed this biochemist's career years ago.
She says she'd rather spend even more time with beautiful fabrics and threads and beads than with DNA sequencing gels and radioactive isotopes of cold, gray science.
