Did ya know ...

that I am teaching another awesome class at the Textile Arts Center in conjunction with the exhibit?

Here are the details- it starts next week.

The Embroidered Journal w/ Joetta Maue

Wednesdays, 6-8:30 Sept 15, 22, 29, Oct 6

Working autobiographically, we will create a daily embroidered journal. Students will create simple samplers, learning traditional stitches, then move on to creating a daily response journal through stitching. When we see embroidery as "drawing" with thread, how does the medium change? Use a combination of traditional stitches, or try your hand at free-form stitching, where recognizable image and text are not necessary in representing personal thoughts, emotions, & events

Price: $150, + $25 materials fee

Joetta Maue is a local working fiber artist specializing in embroidery.
From her artists statement:
"I am not an extraordinary woman. I do not live under extraordinary circumstances. I am a woman who has both flaws and fears and also strengths and hopes. Through the depiction of these characteristics, I invite the viewer to relate to and connect with the work the artist, and the subject of human experience."
