Embroidering The Truth Workshop with Jennifer Bockelman

Jennifer Bockelman received an MFA from the University of Colorado Boulder in Sculpture. Her work addresses the themes of power and cultural identity when filtered through language. She is interested in accidental juxtapositions, and the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. This workshop introduces a project that explores the interplay between the languages of images, materials, and texts. Participants will learn a few basic stitches, mine their family history for a word or phrase, then select an image to pair with it to begin an embroidery project of their own. Beginners and experienced embroiderers are welcome. All supplies for the workshop are provided.
