Say It Softly
We may speak loudly in this workshop, but we’ll do it through the softness of textiles. Using language as a starting point—phrases,mottos, slogans, and powerful single words—we’ll make ideas literally tangible. We’ll use a range of textile processes to translate words into physical forms, including appliqué, reverse-appliqué, trapunto, piecing, embroidery, and embellishment (with plenty of sequins). Students can expect to produce a set of process samples and one or more finished pieces by the end of the workshop. All levels. NOTE: Textiles workshops are taught in walk-up studios accessible by a stair lift. Code 01TA
