Learn the art of floral embroidery during this three week class. Explore different types of stitches and threads that can be used to create textured lilacs, daisies, roses, vines, leaves and more! Start with a sampler during class one and use the following two classes to design and create your own unique floral hoop. The embroidery hoops and needles will be the students to keep.

Mallory Zondag is a Mixed Media Fiber artist and artist educator. She graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Fashion Design and her work has been exhibited in both solo and group shows in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the Ukraine. She has been an artist in residence at The Allentown Art Museum, The Wassaic Project and many schools and community organizations. During many of these residencies she has led community art programs where felted wool living walls are collaboratively created with students of all ages and abilities. She was commissioned to create the sensory space for ArtsQuest's Accessible Arts program and was recently commissioned to recreate a component of one of Amalia Mesa-Bains's installations for her retrospective at the Berkeley Art Museum. Mallory currently travels around the Northeast teaching workshops, leading community art programs and installing shows. Her work explores our tenuous relationship with the continuous growth and decay of the natural world and humanity’s place within those cycles using felted wool, wax, fibers, fabrics and objects both found and recycled. Our collective fascination and repulsion towards natural processes, from blooming flowers to blooming molds, pushes her to sculpt moments of grotesque beauty, investigating this duality through the meditative and hands-on practices of wet felting, weaving, sculpting and stitching.
