Our first fiber art workshop of the season kicks of with world traveler, photographer, author, illustrator, AND of course, textile artist Pam Holland.

Pam’s April 2-8 workshop will focus on her custom developed technique of painting with thread and still has a few spots available! 

In preparation for her workshop, we asked Pam five questions and here’s what she shared with us.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration from?
PH: My inspiration comes from the images I take as a photographer and the travels that I undertake.

Q: What are you most proud of in regards to your art?
PH: I guess I would have to say that winning best in show in Houston {at the International Quilt Festival} was the most amazing event and my current project, the creation of The Bayeux Tapestry as a quilt.

Q: What are your biggest challenges to creating art and how do you deal with them.
PH: To be honest, it’s easy for me, I have no challenges at all. I create intuitively and I enjoy the opportunity to teach others to do the same.

Q: What advice has influenced you?
PH: Not anything really…I’ve worked through the process of teaching and creating myself. I teach very different than others, and I prefer to take ownership of my own ideas.

Q: Is there something you are currently working on, or excited about starting that you can tell us about?
PH: I’m creating a major project, The Bayeux Tapestry to Quilt. I have been working on for 11 years now. It’s 236 feet long and an exact recreation of the Tapestry. However, it’s a quilt rather than a Tapestry of course.

You can find more details about Pam’s work on her website and also follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Vimeo.
