Breadboard resident artist Shelley Spector held another digital embroidery workshop this past weekend at NextFab! Shelley has been here working on our laser cutters and our digital embroidery machine, leading up to her exhibit Dreck Groove, on display now at the Esther Klein Art Gallery. If you haven’t been over to see her work at EKG yet, it will be up until March 30th. It’s not one you want to miss!
The workshop started at the gallery, where Shelley greeted attendees and discussed her work. Afterward, everyone came to NextFab and Shelley dove into the details of the processes she used for her work.
The workshop was split into small groups and they rotated through 4 stations: a tour of NextFab’s machinery and facility, sewing with the digital embroidery machine, laser cutting, and the digital embroidery software.
Everyone in the workshop was able to make and take home their own “Gone” watch, a piece designed by Spector for the workshop.
Thank you to Shelley for holding the workshop and to everyone who came! If you missed it, sign up for our digital embroidery classes and catch up!
