A 3-Day Online Workshop!

Tuesdays, July 12, 19, and 26, 6-8pm ET via Zoom

About this Workshop:

Explore embroidery and lacemaking to navigate language and mark making. Together we’ll study the relationship between poetry, storytelling, and fiber processes to create a narrative textile. Students will experiment with embroidery techniques (novice to experienced stitchers welcome!) on fabric, netting, and paper.  Each student will choose a poem or piece of text as inspiration for their narrative textile.

Level: All levels welcome – no previous experience necessary

Registration closes July 3, 2022. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to gather/purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.

First three sample images by Sasha Baskin; Student example in 4th image featuring the embroidery hoop.

Sasha Baskin’s weaving and drawing work explores the intersection of craft and classical rendering. She uses traditional weaving and lacemaking processes in combination with source imagery from reality television to address the intersections between analog and digital technologies. Trained in classical drawing, Baskin received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014. Transitioning to craft and studying weaving, natural dyes, and ikat dye resist processes, she received her Master of Fine Arts from VCU in 2018. Her exhibition record includes solo, two-person, and group shows at Blue Spiral Gallery in Asheville NC, IS Projects in Ft Lauderdale FL, and the Visual Arts Center in Austin TX. She was a 2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and a 2020 and 2022 Winter Resident at Penland School of Craft. Baskin lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
