Embroidered Poetry Workshop Led By Iviva Olenick and Hunterdon Poets
Join us for a Sunday afternoon spent stitching words and images together. Artist Iviva Olenick and Hunterdon Poets, Kasey Jueds, Vasiliki Katsarou and MaryAnn Miller will lead this very special workshop that combines the art of embroidery with the art of poetry.
The workshop will be divided into four segments, starting with a brief embroidery lesson; followed by a poetry reading while participants embroider select words and phrases; a lesson from the poets on drafting personal verse; and finally, participants embroidering their own poems. Participants may also embroider imagery. This program is open to adults and children ages nine and up, with an adult. All materials are provided; pre-registration is required to reserve your materials.
This program is generously funded by the Coby Foundation.
