A Repairing Mend
I am thrilled to be the recipient of an Artist grant from ArtsWestchester for my lace project:
A Repairing Mend
Please join me in this project!
A Repairing Mend is a collaborative art and research project that brings people together to create a monumental lace tapestry and historical textile archive. The community of Westchester - and beyond - is invited to participate as co-creators at every stage of the project. I invite you to contribute family linens and stories for the artwork and archive; to participate in dye workshops to color the lace; and to join a Sewing Circle to stitch the singular parts into a beautiful collective whole.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute or find out more.
Lace can be delivered in person or shipped. I cover shipping costs- I email you a label and you can pop it in the post.
Join me in December
Free Natural Dye + Sewing Workshops in Port Chester, NY.
Friday, December 10, 12-2pm
Sunday, December 12, 12-2pm
Saturday, December 18, 12-2pm
More dates to be added in January.
Join me to learn about the history and use of natural dyes and pigments, dye fabric swatches, view the Int'l Org of Lace Study Box, and together sew pieces into a continuous community work. The project will continue in January, when it will culminate in an exhibition of the ongoing work.
RSVP to email@example.com with Repairing Mend in the subject line.
RSVP is required as space in the workshops is limited. Masks are required.
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.
