Join Geana Sieburger of Britex Fabrics for an in-depth look at the textiles in Designing Home. Then experiment with fabric-arts techniques in the studio; including hand sewing right onto a stretched canvas, fabric collage, and textile design.

Geana Sieburger   is a graduate of the California College of the Arts, her previous artwork explored  interior intimate space that took form as textile installations--such as false ceilings set at 4 to 6 feet from the ground often partnered with videos projected onto the textile--that modified our experience of common spaces.   She currently works as the Community Outreach & Marketing Director at Britex Fabricsand is also the founder & designer of GDS Cloth Goods, a sewing studio offering beautifully-crafted, utility-based, custom-designed and ready-made cloth goods to businesses and individuals.

Dive into the world of midcentury modern colors and patterns as you explore the book and album covers, posters, and other graphic works in Designing Home with local artists,  Alexandra Blum and Calixto Robles.
