Try creating unique textiles using the traditional shibori technique of folding and binding fabric to form unique patterns. Supplies are provided and participants are invited to bring an additional piece of fabric. Fabric must be less than 1/2 yard square, pre-washed, 100% cotton or natural material. This program will take place in the Crocker’s shaded courtyard.

Among other things, we are limiting the number of people in our classes, as well as monitoring and marking the distance between class participants.

Instructor: Yvonne Warren Hi, my name is Yvonne Warren. My business is Jewels and Fiber. I make and sell colorful wearable art and jewelry.
I have always been artsy as long as I can remember. I love mixing and matching fabrics, textures, and an ethnic flare for the best blend of color and style. My business is in Sacramento, California.
I love working with various kinds of media; however, my favorites are fabrics and beads. I am a designer, educator and jewelry and fiber artist. I learned to sew at an early age watching my mother and grandmother sew and grabbing their scraps from under the table. I am a self-taught jewelry designer. I love to paint and dye fabrics and patina metals, turn found objects into beads and wearable art and jewelry using, charms, buttons, and stuff.
What makes my art different is I use fabrics that are up cycled and/or recycled. Most of my bags are made from upholstery fabrics and vinyls from local fabric shops and non-profits organizations whose mission is to keep materials out of the land fill. Everything I design is one of a kind and eco conscious. My art mixes my love for my heritage and my obsession with ethnic fabrics and gems. I design pieces for beauty, function, and to enjoy.
