Mending Circle: Slow Stitched Patch Tote Bag
January 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS.
Join us, with Artist in Residence Penny Gunderson, for an online Mending Circle Workshop. We will be working on slow stitching fabric patches and then attaching them to a simple cotton tote bag. All materials and bags will be supplied and can be picked up at the Women’s Centre. If this is not possible, please email email@example.com.
Completed stitching projects can be part of an upcoming art exhibit in the Arts Commons +15 Gallery.
There is a special atmosphere when women bond over hand stitching. Historically, sewing and quilting circles were a way that women found companionship, sharing of skills and connection to the community. A goal of the Mending Circle Project is to give women today an opportunity to gather, share and strengthen one another while working on simple hand sewn projects.
This workshop will be held online via Zoom and is open to women-identifying individuals only.
