Adult Workshops at the Ohio Craft Museum
CraftView workshops are classes for adults and teens that provide artistic inspiration and creative stimulus. The media offered often align with exhibitions in the gallery space, such as quilt surface design, weaving, jewelry-making, fiber art and more. Information about our spring and summer adult programming will be posted soon. Please add your name to the form below to receive our next email announcement.
Craftview Evening Workshop
Wednesday, September 17
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Join fiber artist Phyllis Walla Catania and explore the ancient art of indigo dye. You’ll experiment with a variety of resist techniques on muslin, including shibori methods with pebbles, marbles, sticks and string. Then, you’ll dye a cotton pillowcase to encourage “dreams of peace.”
Workshop fee: $12 for members, $15 for nonmembers, includes all supplies and pillowcase.
Pre-registration is required: call 486-4402 to register.
The Peace Flag Project: call for entries
This fall, The Ohio Craft Museum will host Enough Violence: Artists Speak Out, an exhibition addressing the epidemic of violence in our communities. In conjunction, we’re requesting peace flag donations from quilters, guilds and other artists for a large-scale installation project promoting ideas of peace and harmony throughout the community.
Start your flag with a piece of fabric that’s 5 x 11”. Fold 3” back from the 11″ end and sew as a top sleeve for hanging. The finished flag will measure 5 x 8″. Using a textile base, you are welcome to add any media or technique of your choice, expressing a message of peace, unity, tolerance or community. Hand-dyed, hand-printed, repurposed or purchased fabrics will all work well. Send as many entries as you or your guild would like.
For more information and inspiration about the peace flag movement, see this blog.
To be included in the public installation, flags must be received by August 25, 2014. Flags received after that date will go on display in the Ohio Craft Museum library and/or atrium area. Flags will be accepted throughout the exhibition, which ends October 26.
Please send your signed flag(s), along with a note stating your name, email address, artisan guild (if applicable) and mailing address to:
