glean from life to make something powerful!

Another opportunity to take a class with me at the wonderful and amazing Textile Arts Center.
In September I will be teaching:

Autobiographical Embroidery

Glean from daily observation to create a one of a kind personal artwork by creating a visual "diary sampler" of embroidery stitches, incorporating abstraction and pattern or confessional writing and images. The "diary" of stitches will be explored as a daily act and observation. We will discuss the creative use of diaristic writing and daily life documentation, while looking at examples of contemporary fiber artists and learning traditional stitches.

This class will open up your creativity in making needle work pieces and unique works of art.
Participants are encouraged to bring text and found fibers that have meaning for them. All necessary materials are included. Any additional fabrics and materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. Also, we have Open Studio time for students to put their new knowledge to practice!

Sign up here and I will be offering a class in Manhattan in October!!!

You have NO IDEA how much I'd love to take the autobiographical stitching class with you!! I'm plotting places to spend my weekends so that I can. Which classes are the specific autobiographical ones? Thanks!

You can see my full schedule of teaching here.


At the Textile Arts Center:

The Brooklyn Monday classes in September and the Manhattan Wednesday classes in October are the autobiographical ones.

The Saturday in Brooklyn will be 3 dimensional embroidery.
