About the Instructor
With a goal of continual growth through exploration, Lisa Jacobs Handler is passionate about fiber art and textile design as her main artistic focus. Her work can be seen as functional and fashionable for home decor and personal adornment. She employs a variety of textile techniques including weaving, embroidery, macrame, sewing, and hand dying. Natural fibers such as wool, silk, cotton, and bamboo are her preference, as they each have their own reaction to natural dye and mordants and therefore a unique interaction with each other. Using a mixed media approach, Lisa is inspired by the results of manipulating color and texture through process and experimentation. All the processes that she is interested in are slow and time consuming, detail oriented, sometimes unpredictable, and yet gratifying. She is focused on naturally occurring patterns and colors. The intersection of science and art inspires her and tells a story in and of itself and then she layers her own ideas within to tell a story of her own.
