About the Event
Join us at the PBF for a hands-on workshop in embroidery! Attendees will follow along as artist-in-residence Scott Walker guides the class through different stitches and ways of filling in space with embroidery thread. Following this demonstration, attendees will be able to try out their new skills with some simple patterns. Each person will leave with their own small, embroidered creation and the tools (embroidery hoop, needles) to create more at home. Materials are included in the cost! Spots are limited for this event!
About the Artist
Scott Walker (b. 1996, Massachusetts) is a New York City based artist working in traditional fiber craft techniques, primarily embroidery. In his work, Scott uses a deliberately feminine aesthetic, one that is soft in both material and sensibility. His work has a quality of camp, often elevating unsophisticated subject matter. Scott is interested in the special place that pop culture icons hold in the queer imagination. Pop stars are exalted to goddesses and icons. CDs, movies, and magazines become avatars through which queer people express our feminine sides and communicate pieces of our identity.
Scott graduated from Parsons the New School for Design in 2018 with a BFA in Fine Art. Scott has exhibited his work in group shows in the US and internationally. He also collaborated with MTV in April 2021, creating 3 original artworks and social media posts for the brand.
