Threads: Ensemble 2017

Ensemble took place Sunday, April 30th at the Madison Masonic Center.

From the eclectic selection of runway designs to live music and dance, Ensemble was experienced from many perspectives. The production engaged a range of audiences through a mash-up of classical and contemporary music and design. With a shared vision, we created unity in diversity, embraced the essence of inclusivity, and celebrated each element of an ensemble.

Threads: PULSE 2015

Pulse. Heartbeat. Rhythm. Flow.
These words describe the moments of creative energy that spark inspiration
turning an idea into form. From a thought to a thread, from a concept to a cloth,
we pull from our imaginations to create tangible objects. Through skill, time,
patience and intuition, we tap into the vitality of making; of creating
the flow, the rhythm, the heartbeat, the pulse.
