Christine Mauersberger, Instructor
Dates: September 13th – 14th, 2021 (9am-4pm)
Stitch with us this Fall as we cozy into cooler days with a mindful and meditative hand-stitching process. Christine Mauersberger is an American textile artist who produces complex mark-making narratives: intricately stitched maps of the mind. Join her as she guides us through exercises to engage with slow hand-stitching in a meaningful and contemplative manner. The two-day session will be filled with music, doodling, stitching, and fun. She will present ideas and methods through samples, books, PowerPoint presentations, and music.
Students are encouraged to bring a small sampling (1 to 3) of their own stitched items to share with the group to help each of us gain a sense of community, sharing, and mutual respect.
This is a nice kick-start session for building a meditative and purposeful style of hand-stitching.
