SOLD OUT – Cloth & Conversation

Do you have a favourite memory related to clothes? Do you remember the first item of clothing you cherished, or the details of what your grandmother wore?

Our bodies, identities and memories are intertwined with ideas of clothing, fabrics and what makes us human, and what connects us to each other. This workshop will create a time-based document of our collective conversations, and the mapping of memories of clothing in quilted stitch techniques. No prior skills are necessary, just come with your hands, and be
open to discussing your personal connections to fabric and memory.

Free with admission.
Advanced booking is essential.
