“I picked textiles as a medium because I believe textiles have the ability to speak. Because I think that they have the ability to tell our stories. To tell us who we are and how we are.” – Sonya Clark
From school uniforms to white dresses, we spend our lives in fabric that holds meaning. Join artist, Chanel Thervil, to explore power and symbolism in fabric and textile arts. The workshop will begin with a guided tour of Sonya Clark’s exhibitions, Monumental Cloth and Heavenly Bound. Following the tour, participants will learn about quilts used on the Underground Railroad to communicate routes, help, safety, or danger. You’ll create your own fabric collage inspired by the personal meanings of different fabrics.
All supplies will be provided. Students will meet at the in the front lobby of the museum.
