Mapping Local Places on Cloth & Paper

A “Place” can be anywhere from your home to a cherished destination to one square foot of the earth.  In this workshop we will explore, collect, document and express our interpretations of the  ‘Place’ where we find ourselves working together.  Cloth and paper are the documentary tools. Stitching, dyeing, rubbing, photographing and organizing collections are the techniques used as ways of knowing “Where is Here?”

We will spend time outdoors through guided projects that include collecting, making photographs and dyeing with local found materials.  Another aspect of the journey is to develop daily rituals for creating work and marking the ideas down. Each participant will develop their own favorite ways of making a map of their experience.

The diverse ‘fragments’ of ‘Place’ will be brought together in a book or books constructed using simple bookmaking techniques demonstrated in class.
