Critical Discussion

Thinking Through Thread

This seven-month fibre intensive (September – March) will focus on the magic of how threads are transformed into art. Each session will delve into a different aspect of textiles as witnesses to our lives. Topics will include: the environment; love, healing, and the body; death, mourning, and the spiritual; clothing; identity and memory; activist and performative textiles; and the future of fibre. Threads of feminist thinking will run through each session, as will the importance of Indigenous threads. Sessions will include slide lectures, readings, discussion, looking at the work of artists and makers and more. For a meeting link, contact barb@mawa.ca.
