MBNCA received a $6000 grant to create a women’s circle to meet weekly during July and August to “translate” photos from the Women’s March January 21st into fabric art that will be included in our annual Please Touch tactile art exhibit this fall!
Arpilleras are patchwork images historically created by groups of women called Arpilleristas in many countries in South America. While many arpilleras depict scenes of daily life, arpilleras were also used in Chile as a subversive art medium by women during the Pinochet regime in the 70s and 80s.
Each participant will work on a 18 x 18 square and learn the applique and embroidery techniques to make this a memorable group learning. Our lead teacher, Peruvian artist Fresia Valdivia, will work with each participant to share their ideas and knowledge about this one-of-a-kind historical and empowering project.
Class will take place at the gallery on Saturdays, 10:30 to noon, with lunch to follow.
