Exploring Cultural Identity & Strengthening Resilience through Story and Cloth

In this Master Class class, we will weave experiential art-making (simple narrative cloth structures, group mural and individual pieces), with resilience narratives and an examination of cultural strengths.

What to bring for the day-long workshop! Bring your curiosity, dreams, strengths and hopes. We will start the workshop with an exploration variety of cultures’ use of fiber arts to create what is both practical and expressive. We will look at Narrative and Other quilts from the African Diaspora in North America and in India. We will look at the Hmong narrative quilts created by refugees in North America. We will look also look at prayer flags from a variety of cultures as artistic expressions of hope and strength.

For the hands on work you might like to bring a variety of pieces of cloth that have personal meaning for you (lace, bits of clothing, ribbons, buttons, embellishments, all are welcome). If you have particular scissors, embroidery floss, needles, thimbles, etc. please bring. We’d like to do some very simple image transfer so if you have some ancestor photos that you would like to play with in this way, please bring LAZER copies.
