Thread Workshop

Yesterday I attended a great fiber arts workshop at Lisa Kokin's Studio. Lisa is a nationally known
book & fiber artist. I learned how to work with thread and water soluable backing to produce fiber art pieces which can be sewn together to make a quilt (after I make a few more) or displayed on their own. It was great fun. My ultimate goal is to the apply the process in making fabric which I can incorporate into my sculptures.

I have rented a new studio space right in the Point, half a block from my house. It's also right next to the Refined by Fire Gallery at 103 W. Richmond Ave. Every 3rd Thursday of the month Point Richmond has an Art Walk. All the Galleries and some of the business and restaurants are open and it's a lot of fun. I took part this month and below are some shots of the gallery section of my studio. The best part is that there's an equally large work space behind the curtain.
