Join us for a hands on bundle-making, story-sharing artist open hours!
Inspired by the tradition of storytelling while making, the bundle-making workshop engages women from various immigrant and refugee communities in the making of symbolic “bundles.”
Through the act of making together, participants can share stories. These anomalously shaped cloth wrapped bundles may represent what is left behind, and what may be carried in migration – survival, hope, dreams. Throughout these sessions, these bundles will be exhibited collectively in public spaces to generate conversation, dialogue, and bridges across experiences, generations, and ethnicity. The bundles will contribute to the project Leavings/Belongings.
Workshops will be held on Thursdays, November 15 & 29, December 6 & 20, January 17 & 31 and February 7 & 28 from 4-6 pm. Materials are provided. Feel free to contribute to the project by bringing fabric meaningful to your personal or your family’s journey.
