Workshop 2- Textiles by Heart: Stories with all our Wits and Senses

Saturday, August 11 ~ 10 am to 4 pm
Facilitated by Skye Morrison

‘Textiles by Heart’ takes you on a journey into your memories, imagination and knowledge, your ‘wits’ and combines them with all of your ‘senses’. From the short story shared in the group, participants will piece, stitch and print a progressive illustration of their personal narrative. Demonstrations of appliqué, stencil printing, Itagame dyeing and straight stitch embroidery will give you a repertoire of techniques and fabric pieces to apply to your story. Working on a handwoven cotton ‘rumal’ from India, each person will mix their own recipe to complete a small work in one day. No previous experience is necessary, this is an exploration for anyone who loves working with textiles. Stories will be retold, in living cloth, at the end of the day. To view the poster for the workshop, please click here.

Cost:  $75.00 + HST = $84.75 (at registration) + $15 Materials Fee (payable at the Workshop)
