Next week I'm having my embroidery class do a valentine project... so I played a bit. There's some red printed fabric, some crocheted lace tacked down, black beads spelling out LOVE, and a printed ribbon. Everything was stitched and beaded, then cut out, sewn, and stuffed. My heart shape isn't totally perfect- but I like it that way. For a more perfect heart shape I would have drawn the outline to sew along.
This past week was my first full week of student teaching!! It went well, but don't expect too many posts in the near future.
This blog will be an effort to document my thoughts and experiences in studio work, art criticism, and community education in the areas of fibers, color theory, screenprinting, and art education. Please respect my work and link back to me if you use any images and feel free to comment. I am a fiber artist from Philadelphia, teaching at Fleisher Art Memorial, and have recently completed my Masters of Art Education at Tyler School of Art, Temple University.
