|The Invention of Glory ~ 3 hour workshop at San Diego Museum of Art, on June 9|
The exhibition, The Invention of Glory, showcases four monumental European tapestries (12x36 feet) from the 15th Century. They were woven by Belguim weavers of the costliest silks and exquisite gold threads. This is the first time they've been shown in the United States, and they are considered some of the finest tapestries of the Renaissance.
No pressure on me to create a workshop, huh? And of course, I've never seen the tapestries, because they go on exhibition June 9, the day of my workshop. That dear readers, is often the case with a working/teaching artist. To be creative and inventive with just a few facts. But, Amy is thrilled with my proposal and I will be teaching an easy, introductory fiber arts project, that you can complete in the workshop. It will also help you appreciate the incredible amount of time and talent that went into the tapestries.
The workshop (The Invention of Glory~ fiber arts) is Saturday, June 9, from 1-4pm. $50 for nonmembers/$40 SDMA members. ALL materials are included, along with admission to the museum to see the tapestries and hear more about them from a docent.
Call The San Diego Museum of Art 619.232.7931 or you can buy tickets online.
