Saturday Nov 19, 1-4pm $10 Materials Fee payable to the teacher on the first day of class Instructor bio: Amy Keefer is a visual artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from California College of the Arts. Hailed as “radical in its romance” her work is rooted in wearable art, simultaneously addressing textile practices and relational aesthetics. Conscious of the constructs at play when dressing and the cultural resistance of making, her aim is to awaken deep complications surrounding labor, trauma and commerce using her own body as an exploratory site. Her work has been recognized widely throughout the United States.
