Bay Area artist and past Peninsula Wearable Arts Guild President Marcia Manzo has been creating since she was a young girl, beginning with embroidery and needlework and moving to more complex crewel embroidery and quilting. Using textile collage, she created new fabrics that evolved into a line of colorful wear.
She says, “My garments represent my many passions of the moment that send me on a frenzied path of making dozens of one type of art at the end of which is boredom and I’m off to another. At the moment is Kantha garments on one part of my brain and delicate silks pieced into “stained glass” garments on the other.”
These jags have taken Marty from Jacket Jazz garments, to everything one can do with the Plaza jacket, to knit felted handbags….. etc. Each of these interests have begun with a single thought or piece of fiber; often inspiration from a class or a sentence spoken by a teacher.
Partially slide show and partially talk/show and tell, Marty’s presentation promises to be humorous as well as thought provoking.
