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.
Please Note: The online session will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic’s private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded. Access to the recording(s) will be made available to all participants for a limited time.
