Soul Stitching with Renee J. Moore

10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For ages 14 and up (Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.)

Wilson Arts Center

This workshop is designed to engage participants in the meditative quality of stitch work and explore the medium using an intuitive process. Activities will include hand printing on fabric using found objects and then deconstructing the prints and reassembling them into a mixed media project incorporating embroidery-inspired stitch work and embellishments. No experience is required, and all materials are provided.
