Lining : Sheathing Is a collaborative installation by Denise Bookwalter and Lee Emma Running exploring the materials of textiles, handwork, and embellishment. Using the 60 X 80 inch size of a queen bed as a measure, we created a series of large format woodblock prints on handmade paper, and built a bedroom sized printed canvas and dyed silk tent. Viewers were invited to wear bed jackets and move through images printed, dyed and stitched onto multiple materials into a more and more intimate space.

This project was developed with residencies at Penland School of Crafts, Small Craft Advisory Press, and Constellation Studios.
