Needlework Workshops

Traditional Needlework as Contemporary Art:

Women have been using Art and Craft over centuries as a career, to protest, comfort, heal, teach, support, keep records, hide messages, claim their voices and tell their stories. These skills cannot be lost or forgotten, because it is part of our history and is interwoven and ingrained in our rising.

All people are welcome to participate and no previous skills are necessary for all my workshops.
