About this event

SFSNAD Talks Back: Episode 1 featuring Lauren Yeager

About: Join us in conversation with SNAD instructor Lauren to discuss her embroidery career, artistic hobbies, and her role at SNAD.

You might recognize her from workshops, stitch-in, or as host to our amazing webinar series but today she is answering the questions, not asking!

Lauren Yeager is a textile artist with a particular interest in studying and preserving traditional garments and embroidery.

This passion led her to study at the Royal School of Needlework in the UK, and later with the Japanese Embroidery Center and Ecole Lesage.

She has a BFA in Fashion Design from Columbia College in Chicago and has received multiple awards for construction and design in costume and in hand embroidery, including the DCASE individual artist grant from the City of Chicago.

Before coming to SNAD, Lauren worked as a production assistant for visual artist Nick Cave in his Chicago studio, building soundsuits for museum installations and private collections. She has extensive experience as a freelance artist, assisting in costume production for various performances and competitions.

Register for this webinar to learn more about Lauren and her work in and out of SNAD.
