Textiles A Summer Session 2

Textiles Summer Session 2
June 6-17, 2021
Patricia Cooke and Jeana Eve Klein
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. Using a range of textile processes, we’ll 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. Northlight building.
