embroidered journal class @ pratt

wow! this embroidered journaling class looks amazing... here's what iviva has to say about it:

I am excited about my imminent 5-week embroidery workshop at Pratt, The Embroidered Art Journal. I hope some of you will join me, or pass the word on to friends who may be looking for a creative way to spend Wednesdays in April and May. Here are the details:

The Embroidered Art Journal, PMDA-104
5 Wednesdays at Pratt Center for Continuing and Professional Studies
144 West 14th Street, near 7th Avenue
April 21st - May 19th, 6:30-9:30pm


After mastering a dozen stitches for decorative and practical use, we will explore a range of methods for interpreting photographs as embroideries, drawing with thread, and transferring images and text onto fabric.

The goal is for each student to embark on a personal project that incorporates embroidery and narrative. Mixed media projects are encouraged.

Previous students have worked on a wide range of pursuits: one is in the process of making a book for her soon-to-be grandchild, another did preparatory work for exhibition pieces for a show. Students experimented with non-traditional materials, like sewing on bubble wrap and other forms of packaging. Some created sculptural "landscapes" by manipulating fabric and thread. Others reinterpreted their own drawings and illustrations using fabric and thread.

The possibilities for this class are endless...

Tuition is $195 for 5 weeks (15 hours of class time). Supplies are minimal - I provide as much as possible, which you can supplement with materials of your choice.

Also coming up this spring is the Affordable Art Fair, May 6-9th...More details to come!

With very best wishes,
Iviva Olenick
