Embark on a captivating exploration of fiber and textile arts through an “Exploratory Integration of Textile Arts” workshop. Over the course of these five immersive days, you will delve into a diverse array of timeless techniques including felting, dyeing, embroidery, and basketry. This workshop is crafted for individuals of all skill levels, whether you are looking to investigate fiber as a medium with no previous knowledge, or wish to further explore the elevating nature of textiles in a supportive, curiosity-driven environment. This workshop intends to enhance the act of method acquisition by encouraging participants to embark on a journey where traditional techniques intertwine with the dynamic spirit of their own curiosity- a place where “what if” is welcome. Far more than a lesson in skills, this workshop is an invitation to reimagine and rejuvenate age-old techniques within the framework of modern creatives. Join us for a week where tradition becomes a conduit for innovation, where curiosity harmonizes with timeless skills, and the threads of inspiration guide you in crafting your own uniquely contemporary masterpiece.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Emery Hall

Emery Hall is a nomadic place-based installation artist who strives to highlight the ephemeral narratives that embody the transient nature of our surroundings. With a foundation in fiber and textile work, Emery’s artistic practice is rooted in exploring the essence of place and the often marginalized aspects of our interconnected world. Her practice emphasizes the historical importance of fiber in a contemporary context, offering a bridge between tradition and innovation in the ever-evolving narrative of art. Searching to hold space for the beauty found in the overlooked and the marginalized and evoking a profound appreciation for the transient moments that shape our environments- the tactile and sensory nature of fiber and textile art serves as a monumental medium to articulate the stories of forgotten landscapes and the significance of each fleeting encounter. Emery Hall graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University in 2020 with degrees in both Traditional Textiles and Sculpture. She was the Fiber Artist Fellow at Peters Valley School of Craft in 2022.
