From Photographs to Fabric Patterns

Request Program

Biology, art and activism merge in this presentation.  Dawn Flores, Creative Director for The Forest Project, tells the story of how she collaborated with other artists to document a 60-acre urban forest clear-cut for development.  Dawn has created over 1,000 fabric patterns from photographs she took, of the now clear-cut property, and works with quiltmakers to sew quilts commemorating what was lost.  Her slide presentation includes detailed information about designing fabric on Spoonflower, a web site dedicate to creating fabric for designers.  There will be time for a question and answer period and opportunity to view fabric samples and quilts made for The Forest Project.

Duration: 2 hours
Audience: middle school, high school, and adult
