Traditional Yoruba Adire Eleko and Tie Dye



In this workshop Gasali Adeyemo will teach traditional Nigerian fiber techniques (Adire Eleko and Tie-Dye with indigo) and discuss how his culture informs his artmaking. Adire Eleko is the process of creating designs using cassava paste (also called yucca), a small broom, and a chicken feather. Tie-Dye is the process of using raffia to tie fabric before dyeing. Gasali will demonstrate various techniques on how to prepare and apply cassava, as well as different ways of using raffia to create designs for Tie-Dye. After the designs are created students will learn how to prepare indigo and use it to dye their work.

Discovering a Mindful Stitching Practice



Do you take walks and take inspirational photographs and wonder how to translate this into your stitching? Would you like to understand how to use your intuitions for stitching projects? Do you want to learn how to connect to your creative self to allow for your own vision to come forth in your work? Christine Mauersberger is known for her hand stitched work that evokes singular moments in time. She uses the form of the humble stitch as a tool for inward as well as outward expression of her inner life and as a message to the external world. The workshop is based on her own studio practice in which she uses photographs, drawing, and thinking as a tool to inform an intuitive style of hand stitching. You will be guided through exercises to translate what you see, think, or dream into hand stitched work. 

Only 1 Space Available! 

When: Friday Oct. 26th- Sunday October 28th 9:00 am- 4:00 pm
Teacher: Christine Mauersberger
