Patching, stitching, appliqueing, darning, and needle weaving are all methods to mend or “heal” fabric. With the theme of healing, students explore personal symbolism to create a meaningful cloth. Students gather inspiration from the traditions of other cultures including Japanese Boro, Indian Kantha, and Molas of the San Blas Islands. Needle weaving techniques add dimension and allow attachment of small personal objects to the work. Students are encouraged to bring recycled, repurposed, or personally significant cloth. A $15 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
