My name is Joslyn Villalpando and I am a working artist and art educator in Chicago. After studying fine art and art education at the University of Cincinnati, I spent 7 years teaching elementary art. While teaching, I completed my master's degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), studying the impact of craft and fiber art on art education. My small research group of young participants grew into a little community while learning to weave, sew, embroider, and dye; sharing the stories, memories, thoughts, and ideas that arise when creating together.

After witnessing the beautiful community that is built when creating with friends, I first began holding craft and cocktail parties to spread my love of the handmade with my favorite people. We gathered to learn how to block print to make valentines or embroider to create holiday ornaments- each craft accompanied by a featured batch cocktail and treats, of course. Inspired by the old sewing circles and expanding on the theme of intimate, creative social gatherings, I am moving these parties from my tiny Chicago condo and hosting craft events at some of Chicago's most beloved bars, restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques, and cupcake shops. I love utilizing classic, traditional art/craft processes such as; weaving, embroidery, printmaking, and watercolor, and putting a contemporary spin on them to bring you a unique learning experience.

There's nothing better than gathering with others to make something by hand, learning skills and processes that can be used again and again. At each J.Villa gathering, you will experience a thoughtfully curated event in an inspiring space, hand selected and/or handmade art materials, and enthusiastic guidance through the craft process.
