Artrageous Engagement Series: Fabric Gift-making Workshop
November 23, 2013 - 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
In conjunction with our exhibition, Spoken Threads: Craftivist Fiber Art, fiber artist and teacher, Sharon Bottle-Souva will lead a greeting card and gift-making workshop.
Sharon Bottle-Souva of Syracuse, New York has been a fiber artist and quilt maker since 1976. She teaches quilt-making and sells and markets her work through her own small business, Sharon Bottle Souva Fabric Handworks. Using a holiday theme, participants will make fiber-collage greeting cards from silk and cotton fabrics, paper, and threads to create a natural scene or abstract design. Participants can also create fabric-backed glass plates which they are encouraged to give as a gift. Sharon will bring examples of her collages and supply the needed materials.
$20 sliding scale workshop fee; scholarships available.
Reservations encouraged at email@example.com – Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring a pair of sharp fabric scissors and any of their favorite fabrics.
