with Emma Freeman
Wednesday, April 28; 7–9pm CT
In this virtual workshop, learn how to make books out of repurposed fabrics. Practice stitching and collaging pieces of fabric to create abstract mixed-media designs on each page. This slow, meditative process inspires play and experimentation.
Emma Freeman (she/her) is a queer mixed media artist, designer, and teaching artist. She works in many different mediums including textiles, fibers, collage, bookmaking, drawing, printmaking, and cyanotype. Her process is playful, experimental, and meditative. To learn more click here.
