Needle and Story: A Hands-on Family Textile Workshop with Amy Meissner
2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2Art Lab
Join artist Amy Meissner for an exploration of mark-making on cloth. Use a special selection of embroidered textiles from the Inheritance Project, Meissner’s year-long crowdsourcing effort that rescued abandoned, unwanted or unfinished domestic textiles from all over the world. Families will work with vintage cloth, children’s drawings and basic hand stitch to redefine the notion of the heirloom, creating a new object able to span multiple generations and ideals of beauty. No prior sewing experience is necessary. Supplies provided. Recommended for Ages 6+ $10, members receive a 10 percent discount; register online.
