Create a one-of-a-kind, hand-held silk work using materials, colors, and detailing inspired by the monumental Gothic tapestries in The Invention of Glory. The three hour workshop, led by Jane LaFazio, instructor and fiber artist, will begin with a tour of the exhibition for inspiration. Jane will give an introduction on the basic process of hand weaving and contemporary fiber art practices. Fiber arts works will be created by weaving silk and gold sari ribbons that will be hand-embellished with decorative stitching and miniature beadwork.
