In 2023, Belfast fiber artist Jane McLean created an exhibit of twenty 12-inch panels, "Circles of My Life: A Fiber Art Celebration of My First 75 Years." In this workshop, attendees will view several of these richly-embellished panels. They will learn about Jane's process of telling a personal story through textiles in traditional patterns. Then they will create a framed 8"x8" wall hanging based on the Folded Star pattern. All materials will be provided, and no sewing is required. The full exhibit can be seen at Jane's website,
