MAKER MAKER: Hand-Stitched Patches with Nelligan Letourneau and Shauna GassFebruary 8, 2017
Join us for our next MAKER MAKER workshop and learn to make hand-stitched patches with current Mount Allison Fine Arts students and avid patch makers, Nelligan Letourneau and Shauna Gass. Working with felt and embroidery thread, Nelligan and Shauna have made patches as part of their art practices, as statements and as gifts for friends. Whether pinned to a shoulder bag, backpack or jacket, patches are compelling for the way they can travel through the world.
At this workshop, participants will design and make their own patches using an inspiring assortment of felt and thread colours. Nelligan and Shauna will share helpful tips for finishing edges and stitching letters.
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.
