|The Tie on Pocket|
A Tie on Pocket: Women’s History in a Utilitarian Accessory
This workshop is in conjunction with the "Women of Resilience"
exhibit currently ongoing at the Museum.
Take the workshop and see the exhibit! A one trip outing!
Historically pockets were an accessory that women from 1600 through the early 1900s wore independent of their clothing. In these pockets they carried all kinds of things…pencils, thimbles, keys, pictures and more.
In this workshop participants will create a fabric pocket that can be tied around their waists to carry a variety of today’s useful objects such as money, a small notebook, even a cell phone! With a kit of fabrics, ribbon, threads and embellishments and using hand sewing and simple embroidery techniques they will individualize their pocket the way our female ancestors did. Each kit contains items that will make the pocket unique. Simple hand sewing will make it personal just as individual stitches personalize a quilt or a mended garment.
Join me for this in-person workshop at Massillon Museum in Massillon OH.
Saturday May 15, 2021. 1:00-4:00 PM
$17 for members, $20 for all others.
Kit included in the cost!
Masking and social distancing protocols will be employed.
Space is limited. Visit www.massillonmuseum.org to register or
I hope to see you there! It is so good to be able to teach in person again!

mixed media collage on panel
I knew it had been a long time since I posted.
Seeing that August date of my last post is a bit embarrassing.
If you are still out there "Thanks!"
Just like many of you, maybe all of you, 2020 has been a challenging time.
Learning how to manage time, complete old tasks in a new way, visit others safely and for many of us,
learning how to use technology like Zoom.
While I have had lots of time for making art since I am staying primarily at home
I find that I am missing teaching and staying connected to other creatives.
I have been offered the opportunity by Pocosin Arts to teach a Zoom class
focusing on mixed media collage.
And I am excited!
You can find all of the details here.
You will recognize the class when you see the image of the above artwork, "Leaf Dance".
There is a description of the class and access to the materials you will need.
The class is scheduled for April 2 and 9, 2021 meeting for 2 hours each day.
I will be sharing some examples of works created using various media and incorporating collage.
There will be demonstrations of a variety of techniques and media with the ability to ask questions and
share the work you make with the other participants.
I hope you will join me on this new venture.
Check it out!
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
