The Patchwork Healing Circle with SPARC
Create a patchwork that speaks out against gender-based violence and the destruction of Mother Earth for The Patchwork Healing Blanket, an ongoing project that currently includes 600 patchworks by women and children from 10 countries. Join textile artists from The Patchwork Healing Blanket to learn about the techniques and stories embedded in each of their patchworks as you begin to create your own. You can contribute your physical patchwork to the project where it will be sewn into healing blankets along with hundreds of artworks from around the world.
The Patchwork Healing Circle on September 19th at 2:00 PM PST is a free virtual program led by Founder/Curator of The Patchwork Healing Blanket, Marietta Bernstorff, and textile artists Jimena Cancino, Maxine Foster, Yolanda Guerra, Jennie Johnston and Christy Klim.
Bring the following materials and more to the Patchwork Healing Circle:
- 27 inch x 27 inch piece of cotton cloth
