Each culture has its' own way of expression and artistic technique that is unique to its' community and sense of place. Everything from material access to cultural affinity of color combinations, steer designs of indigenous peoples. In this workshop you will learn basic applique techniques used in indigenous ( tribal ) handiwork. This sort of design is employed by the use of simple geometric motifs and patterns, accentuated by dynamic placement. Each student will create a design using the techniques learned with attention paid to color and form. We will work with combinations of materials, including, beads, ribbon and embroidery.

All levels of skill are welcomed. Participants will learn how use basic stitches and applique techniques to embellish tank top. Everyone will receive a class kit including embroidery threads, floss, a needle and a black tank top. Students should bring two bundles of embroidery thread in their favorite color.

Artlyn Mali’o earned a degree in architecture, and has taught interior design and design concepts at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in San Francisco.

While on hiatus from teaching, she returned to her roots; a lifelong meditation using beading, fiber arts, embroidery and applique as her focus.

From generations of master seamstresses and weavers within her own family, she learned the deeper aspects of handiwork, its role in healing, along with time-honored skills, practices and the soul of the craft.

 Into every piece she creates, she seeks to integrate the ancestral philosophy of working with what you have, allowing the creative flow to arise out of scarcity, of having less, along with the implementation of basic elements of design. She is currently working on a project called Past Stitches Project in which she explores her own family’s artistic legacy and genealogy through cloth work. See more @alkhemyhandmade
