On Saturday, February 9, textile artist and educator Christi Teasley will lead participants in a print-making workshop at the Artisan Depot in Cowan, Tennessee. The workshop, Stamp It!, runs from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Participants will discover how to carve blocks of linoleum and use those--and other materials--to create one-of-a-kind artwork. Images will be printed on items including tea towels, notecards, and other substrates.
Please visit www.franklincoarts.org/workshops to register; pre-registration is required.
From her studio in Monteagle, Tennessee, Christi's practice centers on crafting works of cloth and paper, utilizing new and traditional processes of natural dyeing, printing, mark-making, stitching and constructing. Dish towels, valentines, tuffets, and large works for walls share her time, attention, and space.
Christi discovered her love of repeated patterns and printing fabric as a high-school student at St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School (SAS) and honed her study of textile dyeing, printing, surface design, and construction at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Christi received a BFA from RISD and later returned to earn a MA in Art Education. She taught studio art and directed SAS Gallery and Visiting Artist Program at St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School. She now continues to work on the leadership team for Shakerag Workshops, a top-notch series of studio workshops for adults which are held on the SAS campus each June.
