Event description

Description

Inspired by the diverse textile works in the Museum’s African, Native American, American and Asian art collections, draw on your own life experience and memories to create a beautifully pieced and layered personal healing or memory cloth. Students will combine unique fabrics of various types and styles with personal memorabilia, such as pieces of clothing and jewelry, to create unique wall hangings rich in meaning and history. Textile artist Paulette Thomas will guide students in the sewing, trimming and applique techniques needed to create this personal treasure.

Meets for 8 sessions Fridays, September 29 through November 10, 2017.
