Level 4 Studies in Experimental Stitch and Multimedia 

This course focuses on combining skills in design, machine and hand stitch to create complex finished items to a professional level. It is the culmination of a number of years of study. Each graduate has developed an individual artistic voice.

“I am a fiber artist and a photographer.   My fiber work includes using experimental materials, unique techniques, as well as traditional stitch in contemporary ways. I travel the world for photography and use my own photographs as inspiration for my fiber and stitch designs.

Photographing women around the world has drawn me to my current fiber work.  I see the beauty and strength of many women who live in adverse conditions.  Their handwork, use of color and design, speaks to the artist in me in every way.

My years of study with Gail Harker have given me the skills I needed to produce works of stitch art that satisfy my soul.” ~Marie Plakos
