JETTE CLOVER WORKSHOP
Texts and Textiles
October 13-15, 2017
About This Workshop:
The primary focus of this workshop is to explore language as a means of visual communication. We will use text and handwriting as key elements of design and find new ways to combine words and images to add meaning to art work. We will work with non-traditional “tools” for writing and make use of drawing, painting, stamping, stenciling, rubbing, printing, and a variety of transfer techniques to apply text to cloth.
About Jette: Jette Clover is a full-time studio artist whose work reflects her passion for text and lettering. She started out as a journalist on a daily newspaper, cementing her relationship to text. She then was an art historian, working for more than 10 years at the Dutch Textile Museum curating exhibitions, including the first European Art Quilts exhibition in 1997.
Jette has been a member of the European group Quilt Art since 2000. She has exhibited widely in the US, Europe, and Asia, and in 2015 was awarded the Quilt Japan prize.
