This unique, interactive, program will primarily focus on the work of Master Teaching Artist Phyllis Thompson and her Story Cloths program.
Phyllis works with fiber textiles, printmaking, photography and collage processes. Her workshops explore techniques of printmaking, collage and fabric construction with the history of African American quilting, and supports students creating meaningful personal images.
Participants will learn about the tradition of quilt making including the meanings and symbolism of several quilt designs.
