snippets and stitches -
an adventure in mixed media
Lori Siebert Studio
16th to 19th SEPTEMBER 2019
3 days / 4 nights
Lori famously experiments with different styles and mediums that feed into her insatiable curiosity. Her whimsical design sense and love of colour gives each collection that she designs its own unique personality. She will be demonstrating to participants the sheer delight and creative freedom of “playing” with paint, paper and thread to produce beautiful, paper-quilt like collages.
During this workshop she'll be developing with participants a variety of hand-painted and hand-stamped collage papers as well as exploring unique mark making, texture and pattern. Next, she’ll demonstrate how to take these papers and begin to snip away... to produce wonderful, nature-inspired shapes to incorporate into textural collages. Finally, participants will add another layer of texture by stitching directly into their collages.
Lori Siebert started taking private art lessons at the young age of 7 and continued to study art throughout high school. This lead to a degree in graphic design from the University of Cincinnati. She opened her own design firm, Olika Studios, just 3 years out of college developing branding and design programmes for influential clients such as Target, Bath & Body Works, Nickelodeon and Universal Studios. She then opened the art licensing arm of her business and now works with several top manufactures in the gift and home-decor industry. Her client list includes Demdaco, Creative Co-op, Studio M, Lang and many more. Her licensed products have been sold through many key retailers and small gift shops throughout the United States and Canada.
Lori’s ethos is to create everyday, dividing her time between her home studio in Kentucky - sewing, sculpting, drawing, painting - and the Olika Studio office where she meets with clients and develops concepts with her very talented design team. She is a wife, mother and grandmother.
