REGARDING THE DISCARDED WITH CARRIE DICKASON

Learn about contemporary art through hands-on activities. Discover how From Underfoot: Breaking through Surface and Ground exhibiting artist Carrie Dickason considers post-consumer materials in her large-format work. She invites participants to bring some of your own frequently used, but often-disregarded materials, and join in reconstructing them, through a variety of textiles processes.

This workshop will include a brief presentation of anthropological and contemporary references, as well as discussion and demonstration of simple textile techniques. Please consider bringing at least one material that you’ve collected from the ground. (This can be anything that draws your attention and you find interesting- there is no “wrong” material) These items will inform our conversation and direct our processes for a fun, creative afternoon!

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited so registration is required.
