Peg Gignoux offers art quilting residencies and book arts workshops suitable for a variety of populations. An accomplished facilitator of many vibrant textile collaborations, Gignoux consistently links literacy with visual images. Working closely with the goals of the host organization, Gignoux provides a curriculum of playful and interactive studio activities that successfully integrates color, pattern, symbol with collage, poetry and prose. Activating dye, paint and thread, Gignoux has created dynamic story quilts for public display with hospitalized children, at risk youth, K-12 schools and university students throughout North Carolina in residencies that range from 5 to 20 sessions.
She also provides book arts workshops offerring sculptural book forms such as secret rooms, spiral and accordion structures. Whether working on cloth or fabric, participants learn to see like illustrators, value words as writers and actively engage in developing a thoughtful and enduring narrative. Themes include friendship, memory, courage, discovery, identity, transformation, urban empowerment.
Gignoux often partners with writer Susie Wilde who leads groups in collaborative story writing workshops.
Art Quilt residencies: Work is created for specific site and designed around a particular subject developed with the host organization.
