Covid & Infectious Diseases Protocol

Mask wearing by participants and their families in the studio is required at this time.
Sharing pronouns in the studio
Every participant at Seams Good Studio is respected very much, including all the ways they present in the world and all the gifts they bring to the classroom. This is an accepting, gender-affirming space. Camp participants are given the opportunity to share their pronouns as part of their introduction to the room. Such as, "My name is Lisa, I use she/her pronouns."
Sharing pronouns is presented as optional, without any pressure, to be included if they are familiar with sharing pronouns, if they want to,
and if not, they are welcome to skip it. This is offered so that everyone is given the chance to say authentically how they identify and how they want to be seen and referred to.
I also respect parents' choice of discussing gender identity at home. Therefore I don't offer discussions or explanations about gender identity.
In participating at Seams Good Studio, your child(ren) will most likely hear introductions with pronouns or references to pronouns by other participants.
Lisa K Alan
My Grandma taught me to sew at age 7. My Grandpa Paul helped cut out Margaret's dressmaker designs. The safe space they provided together to learn and create was foundational for me. I hope to create a similar space for my students, who inspire me so much!
In addition to fiber, I've experimented in ceramics, photography, drawing, painting, collage, mixed media, sculpture, dance and music. My mixed media quilts have been exhibited on both US coasts, including Quilts For Arts Sake in Montclair NJ, and The Biennial at Oregon College of Art & Craft.
I hold a masters degree in Humanities, Quilt History, and have been teaching continuously since 1986—as an arts instructor in my studio, in classrooms as a private school ESL teacher, artist-in-residence, college-prep and life-skills coach, language arts & history tutor— with extensive experience working with students in alternative schools and students with disabilities.
I'm also in the process of unlearning much of the history I've absorbed and passed on through teaching. These "facts" inherited through the colonizing settler's lens need urgent updating. Currently, I am challenged and learning from Embodying Antiracism, a series offered by Nicole Lee and Laura Halpin of Inclusive Life and My Grandmother's Hands by Resmaa Menakem.
I love smelling the ocean, walking labyrinths, petting bumblebees & watching hummingbirds, making gifts for friends & neighbors, sharing a funny story, designing quilts & sewing my own clothes.
