Influened by traditional textile techniques and landscapes Priscilla explores the natural heritage and industrial past of places through knitting, weaving, stitiching or painting. Students explore materials and create pieces that show the hand labor involved. Supporting ideas of sustainability by studying the materials' history and present use is encouraged. Exchanging ideas with participants about craftsmanship, textile history, and the slow process helps them to develop their skills and a connection to articles hand-crafted with care.
