Cleveland, Ohio: CAN TRIENNIAL

Poisonous Beauty

Each summer, fertilizers run off farms near western Lake Erie allowing brilliant shades of toxic green algae to bloom and choke our waters and wildlife. Satellite photographs of the Lake reveal this growth of poisonous beauty. My work asks you to confront this problem and take action.

Must know a few basic stitches. At the minimum: Running stitch. 

If you want to do other stitches please practiced several weeks BEFORE the workshop, for example: French knot and Stem stitch. Both of these simple stitches are nice, but do require a little practice and need more time than what is covered in class.

2018 Florida: The Intuitive Stitch

2018 Florida: The Intuitive Stitch

Location: Ayafiberstudio

The class begins by focusing on how we can use free-form drawing to open our minds to our creative selves. The exercises help us to see in new ways and free us from restrictive thoughts. The exercises will flow from drawing to the creation of individual, small, hand-stitched works. We draw in the form of intuitive doodling on paper and translate those marks in stitch.
