Attire + Autobiography = Art with Merill Comeau

April 10, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

In this workshop we will mine clothing and apply surface design techniques to visually
express our stories: Is a shirt an opportunity for a social justice statement? Do we
express our flair by embellishing a dress? Do we highlight relationships by salvaging
snippets of worn cloth? We will explore the expressive qualities of mark-making with
an emphasis on exploration and play. Participants will be free to work in 2-D or 3-D:
works may take the form of altered garments, quilting yardage, and/or wall art. All
levels welcome, no previous experience necessary. Supply list will be provided.
