Shrink to Fit

Posted By Joan Pont on May 14, 2012

It is really happening this time!   Joan Cacicedo will shrink her life experience in creating textiles into one presentation at the Tamalpais Textile Arts Guild meeting on Monday, May 21, 2012.  Further details: 7 pm, Marin Art and Garden Center, Francis Young Gallery off to the right of the pain parking area, 30 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Ross, CA, Guests can contribute $5 and are welcome.

Jean Cacicedo received a BFA from The Pratt Institute in 1970. A prime innovator in the Art To Wear Movement, Jean’s work in dyed and felted wool cloth has been exhibited throughout the USA and abroad. She will show images of her work throughout her career and talk about her specific process of shrinking wool. She will bring swatches of her varied processes and examples of her garments. Based in Berkeley California, Jean is both a teacher and international fiber artist whose work can be found in the permanent collections of the de Young Museum, the Oakland Museum, and Museum of Art and Design in NYC. We are excited to be able to make Barbie Doll clothes, I mean learn the secrets of shrinking fabric, along with other techniques.
