Ever loved a poem so much you wanted to wear it? Join poet and Peach Mag editor in chief Rachelle Toarmino for a workshop exploring the relationship between what we say and what we wear. Participants will learn about the history of embroidery as a woman’s art of resistance alongside the contemporary ways we wear words, and leave the session with pieces of clothing showcasing their own workshopped and embroidered micro-poems.
Please bring a micro-poem (approximately 10 words in length) and a piece of clothing to embroider.
Registration fee includes embrodiery supplies.
