Broad Stripes and Bright Stars Event

In featured artist Christine Tinsley’s mixed media project “SisterVet,” she honors the stories of women veterans through black and white portraits on special handmade paper made from dress uniforms—melding fabric, memory, and beautiful images. Tinsley will share her practice with participants, guiding them through a “Purell transfer” process that transfers images to her handmade paper in unique, evocative, and sometimes surprising ways! All materials are provided for this fun and easy workshop, but participants are encouraged to bring an image they would like to make into a piece of art, ideally in a high-resolution digital file. While Tinsley will speak to her own work with veterans, this two-hour workshop is open to participants of all experiences.


Our events are made possible in part through the generous support of The Arts Council of Greater New Haven and Wells Fargo.
