anna torma, from new brunswick (but internationally known) is in woody point now for the 2nd gros morne craft residency. tonight she is giving an artist talk at the merchant warehouse in woody point and this weekend she will be offering a 2 day workshop (saturday and sunday 10-4) at the merchant warehouse:
"Anna uses silk fabrics and threads to create both flat and relief pieces. She will introduce her workshop with a presentation about her practice as a fibre artist and demonstrate with pictures and fabrics how a project usually develops from inspiration to design, execution and final selection.
Using a basic vocabulary of hand stitching, the group will sew together different pieces of fabrics and found objects, playing with colours, texture and patterns, learning different ways and techniques to create an even susrface from fragments. Equally important in this workshop are the aesthetics of the final piece and meditative quality of the hand-working process. Previous experience with hand sewing and embroidery is an asset, but not necessary" (taken from the Newfoundland and Labrador Craft Council web site)
The workshop (for 2 days) is only $50.00 and lunch and many materials are included. There are still a few openings.
 anna's work is amazing. i'll be heading up early tomorrow morning to take the workshop and am super excited to have this opportunity... call molly at 1 709 453-2538 to sign up.
