Good Work

Hey Rebels, a quick heads up to let you know that Maya will be holding an open workshop at the Textile Arts Center on May 1, from 2-5 p.m., as part of the exhibition “Good Work.” We’ll be making and sewing patches of textile workers onto clothing, and visitors can screen print one of the worker images, turn it into a patch, and/or grab a patch and sew it onto a garment they bring with them. The goal is to make these often invisible or un-discussed workers visible; to wear proudly what  and who is usually hidden. From the website:

“This May Day the Textile Arts Center and Oak Knit Studio are celebrating the textile workers, artists, designers, and activists who make our world more beautiful and just—all makers tied together by the products of our labor—all makers whose work tries to do good in a multitude of ways.”

The artists Erin Considine and Abigail Doan will also be leading truly great workshops, so come by and celebrate May Day in earnest.

P.S. Mending circle is also coming up on the 5th, and I’ll have patches there as well, so if you can’t make it to this event you’ll have a second opportunity to participate on Thursday.  🙂

P.P.S. Knitters take note: this event is just too great to not spread the word. Come knit a boob! I’m totally serious.
