9:30 am - 5 pm/Two Days

For the adventuresome spirit looking to work in a slower, more contemplative textile methods, participants will begin by using textile paints to print and paint fabric with images of their own design. These images will create pattern, areas of color, or designs that inspire the hand stitching onto the fabric. The "stitched mark", or one's own personal stitch vocabulary will be discussed and used on fabric to create rhythm, movement, and visual and physical texture. This workshop will strive to have students look at stitching on fabrics, not as decorative, but as an expression of themselves -- pulling something new and different from inside onto the cloth. Jennifer will have many samples of her own embroidered pieces, images of contemporary embroiderers' work from around the world, and books on hand. $170/Members: $150
