2014 Maiwa Textile Symposium
Workshop Telling Your Own Story
Tilleke Schwarz

$295 includes 40 lab fee
October 1,2,3,  - Class Limit 14
Maiwa Loft: Above the Net Loft, Granville Is. Vancouver BC

The focus of this workshop is design, allowing students to design a new work in their own style in which they can express themselves and tell their own story. 

The workshop will open with exercises in mixed media and collage. These fast techniques on paper allow students to experiment and to try out new ideas—even without accomplished drawing skills. Students will enjoy the adventure of designing while working, resulting in inspiration for a new work. 

Demonstrations will include Tilleke’s favourite embroidery techniques. While students will focus on hand embroidery, it is perfectly all right to incorporate any other (textile) technique or bring your own sewing machine. 

Hand-stitching is fun but time-consuming; students should not expect to finish a new work in the workshop. The aim is to leave with plenty of new ideas and a start for a new work on cloth.

Tilleke joins us from the Netherlands.
