Quilting Workshop with Donalee Designs - Stitch Meditation 1
Mixed Media Workshop: Stitch Meditation with DONALEE DESIGNS

Cost: $75.00 + $15 materials fee

Hand stitch something beautiful as you mediate on the moment.

See the tabs below to learn more about this workshop.

The joy of working with luscious fabrics, silks, velvets, linen, yarns, and ribbons while sitting still and focusing on the moment at hand, is very meditative.

In this short class we will explore composition, design and enjoy the simple joy of hand stitching.

A materials fee of $15.00 will be charged for additional supplies.

I’m an abstract contemporary improv textile artist. What does that mean? Basically, I use fabric, paint, dyes, and thread to create, colorful works of art that don’t fit neatly into any one category.

My approach to making art is a lot like the way I used to make jewelry. I don’t have a rigid plan when I start a piece; instead, I let the materials guide me and see where the creative process takes me. It’s a completely spontaneous process. I like to work with different surface textures and materials; many l’ve created out of solid white fabric, to help my pieces tell the story.

Sometimes I use traditional techniques, but I also like to experiment with unexpected materials to push the boundaries of what textiles can be. When I stand back and look at my work, I’m personally filled with a sense of joy and delight viewing the contrasts. With bold brushstrokes, delicate hand embroidery, and unexpected colors, I aim to create pieces that invite viewers to explore and engage with the work in their own unique way. Sparking conversations and connections that might be meaningful to them.
