Instructor Bio:

Shannon Twohy works as a director, playwright, artistic instructor, and actor in the Twin Cities where she covers new ground in adaptations of existing theater work while creating and cultivating contemporary, ensemble-based collaborative work. Strongly influenced by a background and love of art, Shannon found a passion for embroidery arts after spending hours upon hours at hospital waiting rooms while her father underwent treatment for cancer.  Shannon sees this tangible medium as an extension to explore the grieving process, pop culture, her past and future all through the lens of what is widely seen as a “woman’s craft.”  She seeks to honor her mother and grandmother through her artwork while also carving out a way of thinking about her roots and own mortality.  Shannon is self-taught in the artistry of embroidery and often leans on influences of woodblock prints, religious artifacts, and human anatomy as she attempts to “paint” or “carve” with thread. Beyond embroidery, Shannon also practices with ceramics, painting, and mixed media.
