Sean Paul Gallegos’ Grafitti Shoelace Workshop
Turn your shoe laces into graffiti art! Gallegos is inspired by “wild style” graffiti. Using basic ribbon embroidery techniques, he creates “sculptural graf” from shoelaces. From a continuous line drawing, we will turn your five-to-seven character word into a shape. Keep your word short, so that you have plenty of lace to be expressive! Bring your word or “tag” plus your basic sewing skills. Shoelaces, thread, wax, and sewing needles will be provided.
