Bluegrass & Gee's Bend


One of our longest running workshops, the Bluegrass & Gee’s Bend workshop has a class offering for everyone. There are eight music classes taught by extremely talented musicians, who will explore the many facets of Bluegrass music. You can also try your hand at quilting in the Gee’s Bend style, led by China Pettway and Mary Ann Pettway, two inspiring women from the Gee’s Bend community. Rachel Wright, a well-known fabric artist, will also be teaching a class where students will re-use old items of clothing to create sassy tees.
