Volunteers of all skill levels learn and use traditional embroidery techniques to embellish images of spectacular old growth forests in Kentucky that have been digitally printed onto silk organza panels for the collective art project, Lavish!


The Lavish! installation sculpture by Zoé Strecker is a long-term project that features community-embroidered images of natural communities and organisms in the forests on Pine Mountain in southeastern Kentucky. The printed silk organza panels, stitched by volunteers, hang within a circular, bent wood structure (22’ diameter by 10’ 4” high). This exhibition includes an active embroidery studio and select works by other artists directly inspired by Pine Mountain.


Embroidery sessions are held twice a week in artist Zoé Strecker's studio on Transylvania University's campus. Due to space constraints, each session has a maximum of 10 participants. If you are unable to sign up for a session, all of the slots have been filled for that evening. The schedule will be updated monthly.
