Costuming is one of the oldest art forms known to humanity. It draws upon cultural information, and taps into our collective memories. In this discussion Robyn will talk about the transformative nature of costuming and how it helps concentrate the power of the imagination.
Robyn became interested in sewing and costuming early in her teens. In her college years she received formal training in theatrical costume design at San Francisco State University. She was a freelance costume designer for many years before becoming an instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College where she currently teaches a variety of classes in fashion studies and costume design.
Robyn's love of textiles and sewing as well as designing and working in theater has led her to experiment with a wide variety of materials and techniques. Through out the years she has used this information to create her artwork. In this talk, Robyn will share her creative journey and show images and samples of her work.
