Center for Creativity - The Workshop

Join artist Deb Brandon for a unique hands-on workshop to tell your story through textile.

There are countless ways to tell a story, whether that's through writing, speaking, painting, weaving, music, and more. And all of us have a unique story to tell.

The Center for Creativity and University Center for International Studies invite students to participate in our What's Your Story? series, which consists of workshops on different storytelling methods that can help you share your unique identity, history, and ideas. Both domestic and international students are encouraged to attend!

For this workshop, join Deb Brandon, textile enthusiast and author of Threads Around the World, for a fascinating look at the stories—literal and symbolic, personal and cultural—revealed in ethnic and traditional textiles. You’ll have the opportunity to create and share your own textile story.

All materials provided. (Additional details will be provided after registering.)
