description
Patching, stitching, appliqueing, darning, and needle weaving are all methods to mend or 'heal' fabric. Focusing on the theme of healing, students explore personal symbolism to create a richly stitched and meaningful cloth. Students gather inspiration from the mending and stitching traditions of other cultures including Japanese, Boro, Indian, Kantha, and Molas of the San Blas Islands. Needle weaving techniques are taught to add dimension and attach or embed small personal objects to the work. Students are encouraged to bring recycled or repurposed cloth, and / or cloth with personal history or meaning. A $15 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
