Weaving Water: Monthly Fiber & Indigo Workshop

Saturday, January 22 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Weaving Water artwork.

Weaving Water welcomes guest artist Amoke Kubat of YO MAMA’s House for Stitch & Flow: Dream Weaving Stories from the Mississippi River Black Experience. Amoke will share stories of the African-American Mississippi River experience. MWMO artist-in-residence Sarah Nassif will teach simple stitching techniques all ages can enjoy. Sew a small indigo dyed dream pillow to fill with herbs for good dreams. Stitch, listen and find inspiration in the flow of the river, dreams and stories.

The workshop is scheduled to be in person at MWMO. However, should COVID-19 conditions change, the workshop will take place online via zoom and project kits will be mailed out.
