The FUTURE is OURS -- a workshop about connection.

For the past three years, I have been creating my own yardage from other textile artists' scraps in order to keep them out of a landfill and to celebrate their uniqueness. During this time I have come to appreciate the secret language that each piece of textile speaks, and the personal stories that each represents. Birth, death, memory, hope, joy; these are the finer things which exist between the weave of each scrap, and which continue to live on even when the garment it came from has been tossed aside.

The FUTURE is OURS is a community sewing workshop which will empower students to breathe new life into their old woven textiles in the creation of their own unique collaged pillow cover. Over the course of two days, students enrolled in The FUTURE is OURS will follow step-by-step demonstrations about the anatomy of woven textiles, the specifics of sewing different types of textiles together, and the precise craft of piecing of woven swatches to create a throw pillow cover of their own design. These skills, once learned, will open the student up to a world of creative possibilities and personal satisfaction. 

The FUTURE is OURS will be a communal atmosphere, and will include ongoing discussions about the personal nature of sewing, about the items brought to this workshop, and about sewing's unique ability to reinvigorate our homes, our lives, and our community.
