Soft Sculpture Still Life

August 12, 2018 – August 18, 2018

Lauren DiCioccio

In this workshop students create objects in soft sculpture, celebrating their familiarity with hand work. Students should feel a relationship to their object such as a tool or a sentimental heirloom. You will compose a still life at week’s end using your soft sculpture. Beginners should choose a simple object and will learn basic construction skills. Advanced students looking to push their skills may pick a more challenging object with surface detail. All sewing will be done by hand, with the goal of creating sculpture prioritizing personality over perfection. Open to all skill levels.


Lauren DiCioccio lives in San Francisco, California. She studied painting and is self-taught in the media of embroidery and soft sculpture. Her work has been shown at the Laguna Art Museum, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the Bellevue Arts Museum, and at galleries internationally. DiCioccio has been awarded several Artist Residencies across the country.
