Standing on Her Shoulders with Michelle Sirois-Silver
“What does it mean to be part of a continuum and why is it an important part of my practice?”
Join textile artist Michelle Sirois–Silver for the first of two talks being held during Crafted Interiors. Michelle works with textiles creating hand hooked and mixed media works from her studio in Vancouver, Canada.
“Although I work in relative isolation, I am never alone. When I sit down to rug hook I am joined by blood relatives who made quilts and knitted clothing for their families. The teachers who inspired me. Peers who support my work and art practice. And people I’ve never met. “Standing on Her Shoulders” looks at these influencers and how they influence the way I think about the work I make.”
