Surface Design


Have you ever wondered what surface design really is? Are you curious about where it’s applicable? Would you be interested in learning some of the ways surface design can be applied to your own projects? Join artist and designer Christa Schoenbrodt in the Great Room as she discusses the various ways she has created her own custom designs and what led her to work with so many types of media and substrates over the decades of her creative career. She'll talk about her upcoming classes at BARN, what inspires her as an artist and designer, and share details about some of her own personal projects. Bring a lunch!

Christa Schoenbrodt

Christa, a life-long Middle Tennessean, has lived a life of creativity. Surrounded by family members who were always stitching something – whether clothing, quilts, or embroidery – her creative expression was often more about exploring fine art. Paper was often her preferred surface not only as a printmaker but as a graphic design studio owner (Studio Haus). Then she learned the artistry of block-printing repeat patterns and textile design, using skills that merged perfectly with her design sensibilities. The slower and more experimental pace of hand-printing repeat patterns presented great surprises and opportunities to accept the “imperfections” inherent in the process. She now works with textiles using not only block-printing processes but also silkscreen, digital design, cyanotype, and mixed media techniques.
