Description

Threaducation Workshops

Take textile art into your own hands with our series of four Threaducation workshops. Led by Calgary artist Caitlin Thompson (and friends), each evening workshop will focus on one technique with the intention that you leave with a new skill and an exemplary work of art. Choose one workshop or take them all with the Threaducation Pass! For member pricing please contact Glenbow bookings: 403-268-4110 or bookings@glenbow.org


Embroidermation (a mash-up of embroidery and animation)

In this workshop, artist Caitlin Thompson will introduce participants to the feedback cycles of embroidery and animation. Both processes rely on sequential bits of information (stitches and pixels) in order for the final piece to hold together. Embroidermation, a term coined by animator Nina Paley, combines both animation and embroidery. Each participant will be given a fabric printed image of an animation frame. The prints will then be embellished with stitches learned in the workshop. At the end of the class, all of these embroideries will be photographed together to create a short, looping animation! All supplies included.
