    Decorative patterns throughout human history have depicted plants, flowers, and other natural elements. Sarah Nassif will present a surprising array of slides that show culturally significant designs developed by people from Germany to Jaipur, Sweden to the American Southwest, and more. We’ll explore nature motifs from across the world, ponder why nature is such a powerful design source, and consider how cultural representations reflect different ideas about nature. Please bring fabrics with nature motifs from your own collection to share! Do you have an amazing piece of yardage from your travels? Family archives? We’ll show and share nature fabrics that inspire us.
