TEXTILES FALL CONCENTRATION
October 1 – November 10, 2023 (six weeks)
Stitch, Bead, Print
This workshop will touch on a wide range of fiber techniques, including sewing, embroidery, appliqué, piecework, beading, dyeing, and printing on fabric. We’ll also cover some structural techniques such as braided rugs and coil baskets. During the first half of the workshop, students will experiment with these techniques and create samples. This will be followed by projects that may draw on everything covered up to that point. Our practice will also be enriched by local field trips. This workshop will cater to beginning and experienced artists; everyone is encouraged to bring an open mind and a playful spirit of curiosity. All levels.
