Event description

Description

Qué rico menstruo is a project and artistic movement that seeks to eradicate the stigma that menstruation carries, started by Romina Chuls. It not only demands its normalization but, also, its resignification. Through personal representation, on the part of each one of us, there is a reappropriation of our uterus, of our
blood flow.

As part of the project, Romina prompts interventions on pieces of clothing, focusing on the groin area, with materials of various shades of red, simulating a menstruation blood stain.

In this workshop, participants will be asked to redefine their menstruation cycle and flow and represent it using embroidery techniques on pieces of clothing*. Participants will learn different embroidery stitches and other textile techniques to better represent their vision.

*Each participant must bring a garment that they want to intervene at the workshop.

Romina Chulz is a feminist artist and artesan from Peru, currently part of the Textile Arts Center's Artists in Residence Cycle 10 program. Learn more about her work here.



Throughout the workshop participants will be encouraged to share their experiences. To make sure we create a safe space, participants arriving more than 30 minutes late will not be allowed to attend the workshop.

Please note that space in this workshop is limited and that participants will be welcomed on a first come first served basis. RSVP is necessary but does not guarantee a seat at the workshop.
