This workshop is an ongoing practice of meditative stitching that encourages creative discovery through reading, journaling and practice. Students will get methods for honing their personal aesthetic and stitching style while documenting their personal creative journey with needle, thread and cloth.
The original in-person workshop is being made available for all levels of stitchers to experience the support of an interactive stitching community. An artist forum is available to share comments, critique and images of work with other members and the moderator, whose experienced and gentle hand provides creative exercises, commentary and feedback both individually and within the group.

Textile Topography is a reference to memory and how we are both a physical and intellectual map of our histories. We carry our scars on our skin, in our bones and even in our cells. We wear our memories as clothing. It is protective armor against the emotional elements that limit growth and joy.
This course utilizes personal narrative and the landscape as a metaphor for the shape of our experience. We develop distinctive stitch forms to record and carve a new road through stitched expression. Students will study textures in nature to inform a fluid vocabulary of thread and cloth for their textile work.
More information is forthcoming.

A brand new online workshop. Coming soon!
An introduction to seeing color in an enhanced way using visual exercises that bring new awareness of the subtlety of color and how it effects the colors around it. We will reference some of the Masters as we explore color theory, its use in composition and its symbolism.
Experiment with fabric, stitching and collage using simple projects that build your artist's toolbox and your color confidence.
