Slow Cloth & The Fabric of Society: A Talk by Leonore Alaniz
Thursday, September 27, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Textile artisan Leonore Alaniz links fiber arts to the Slow Food, Slow Living movement. Pleasure vs. efficiency, nature vs. toxins, heirloom vs. throwaway. What values do we express with our craft, and what culture do we help create? Leonore will address these topics and more in a lecture at the Eliot School.
When & Where
The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts
The Eliot School offers training, classes and workshops in crafts and fine arts – woodworking, sewing, painting, drawing, photography, green crafts and other crafts of all kinds. We serve both children and adults at our schoolhouse in the heart of Boston, and our School Partnership Program sends teachers to classrooms throughout the city.
Founded in 1676 as a grammar school for Africans, Native Americans and colonial children, we turned our focus in the late 19th century to the manual arts. Since then, we have taught craftsmanship and the pleasures of creativity. We are known for our excellent faculty, welcoming atmosphere, small class size, and the charm of our historic site.
Located in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood, we are easily accessible by car and by T, with plenty of public parking nearby.
