No Skills Required
July 29 - August 2, 2024

Say It Softly

During this workshop students will speak loudly, but through the softness of textiles. Using language as a starting point, such as phrases, mottoes, slogans, and singular powerful words, you will make your ideas tangible. Participants will explore a range of textile processes including applique, reverse-applique, trapunto, soft sculpture, and embellishment to translate words to physical forms.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $70-100. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop.
