Neo-Funk embroidery workshops



As part of her “Delicious Obsessions” show currently at Rooster and curated by Ilias Zaimis, the artist will offer a series of free workshops. Come by and learn basic embroidery techniques and talk with the artist about her process, materials and concepts. These embroidery workshops are based on a technique she crafted in recent years and was recently labeled as “Neo-Funk” embroidery by Susan Sider curator of New York Fiber in the 21st Century show at Lehman College in 2011, where some of these works were included.

The workshops will take place during the following days and times:

January 30, 31 and February 1; from 16:00-18:00 (in English)*

February 13, 14, and 15; from 16:00-18:00 (in Spanish)**

Please note that fluency in these languages is not needed to participate.

@ Rooster
