Instructor Artist Statement: Dawna Ellis -- 

My love of textiles is rooted in the endless possibilities that can become of them and have been a part of my creative outlet as well as a core player in my 30 year career as a costume designer and fabricator. I have been making textile platters and vessels for about nine years and am drawn to the rhythmic process of wrapping fabric strips around cording, transforming it into a new fiber. As this newly created fiber is coiled and sewn into shape, a more complex pattern of color and texture emerges as the fabrics interact with each other and create their own harmony. In 2015, I was honored as a winner in the professional division for the 2015 NICHE Awards in the Recycled category for the entry of my coiled vessel, Morning Song.
