MAKER MAKER: Found Photo Embroidery with Karen Stentaford

March 20

Join us for our final MAKER MAKER of the term and learn to stitch into found photos with Sackville artist Karen Stentaford.

One part embroidery bee and one part collage studio, this workshop explores the creative possibilities of found images. Select a photograph that calls to you and make it your own through simple hand-stitching techniques, machine sewing, and coloured tape. We’ll have sewing machine stations, a rainbow of threads, and hundreds of vintage photos for you to choose from.

Karen Stentaford specializes in large-format photography and wet plate collodion process. Embracing an experimental approach that balances chance and precision, Karen creates images grounded in collaboration, whether with her immediate environment or with community. Employing a variety of photographic-based media, her work explores place, belonging, and memory influenced by the Newfoundland landscape of her childhood. She holds a BFA from Mount Allison University, a BEd (Visual Arts Specialist) from NSCAD University & Mount Saint Vincent University and a MA in Photography from the Edinburgh College of Art. She is an Associate Professor in the Pierre Lassonde School of Fine Arts, Mount Allison University.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable and playful, economical, sharable and even wearable.

MAKER MAKER is free and all materials are provided, no registration required. This program is made possible thanks to the generosity of Genie and Bruce Coates.
