In creating a rutabaga (or turnip) we will explore methods of creating form with stitch: pattern creation, sculpting from the outside, stuffing techniques, balance (this rutabaga has a secret) and creating surface texture with appliqué and stitch.  I’ll share some of my favorite supplies as well as tips for creating organic shapes and textures. You will leave with some essential soft sculpture skills and a lovely rutabaga.

About Ann

I live in Brooklyn New York near beautiful Prospect Park. I work with mostly found and salvaged materials many of them vintage or antique garments. I am interested in transformation: cardboard boxes from the fancy grocery store on my block become turreted castles and follies and windmills, and wretched and ruined old petticoats and gowns become roiling boiling seas for paper mache ships and boats. I enjoy using unassuming materials, cardboard, paper and other discarded things. The practicality appeals to me and I love the idea of giving the humblest and most common materials and tired, dispirited and faded things new importance and meaning. Searching for materials to work with is a big part of the joy in the process for me, I love the adventure of it, the happenstance and the surprises – a label with a name, an unexpected lining, some wonderful bit of an incongruous print perfectly preserved in the layers of a ruined 150 year old cuff or an odd and wonderful bit of mending – someone else’s hand. I particularly enjoy working with garments, there is a kind of affection and tenderness in the re-use and re-purposing of things that were once personal and perhaps treasured possessions.
