Craft Lake City is pleased to announce an Embroidered & Beaded Brooches Workshop led by local fiber artisan Danielle Susi at The Gallivan Center on Monday, February 25 from 6:30-8:30pm. Attendees will learn basic beading and embroidery skills, and then make their own custom embellished brooch to wear or share. Materials will be provided and no experience is necessary.
“We are excited to work with the talented Danielle Susi to present an innovative take on embroidery in this workshop,” says Angela H. Brown, Executive Director of Craft Lake City. “Attendees will leave with the skills, inspiration and confidence to continue creating fashionable fiber pieces for every style.”
Danielle Susi is a Utah-based writer, educator and fiber artist. She received her Master of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has shown her fiber work at the Page Gallery and Sullivan Galleries in Chicago, as well as Bountiful Davis Art Center, Eccles Community Art Center, and the Weber County Library System in Utah. In 2019, Susi’s work will be featured in solo exhibitions at Finch Lane Gallery and God Hates Robots in Salt Lake City. Susi has taught fiber workshops all over the state, including at the University of Utah, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art and Weber State University.
Pre-registration is required, and a $35 materials fee applies. Tickets, workshop policies, and event information can be found at craftlakecity.com/workshops.
