Partnership with Duke Arts Create & DuWell

Taught by Sherly Fan

About the Workshop

Join us to create your unique tote bag that captures a piece of nature. Explore a special technique that can directly transfer plants onto textiles. Each participate will be provided with a tote bag that they can take home at the end of the workshop. This workshop will provide some plants but encourages participates to bring their own favored leaves and flowers to create their unique styles.

About the Instructor

Sherly Fan is a multimedia artist who is currently pursuing an MFA in Experimental Documentary Arts at Duke University.

After getting her Bachelor’s degree, she worked in the New York fashion industry for a year.

During the pandemic period, she studied psychological therapy and hypnosis and later earned therapist and hypnosis certificates in China.
