Weaving Water Workshop #7, Blue and YOU

Saturday, November 19 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Weaving Water artwork.

Bring yourself and any of the items you have created at past Weaving Water Workshops for a sharing celebration of what we’ve made. You may choose to add your work to the Personal Watersheds show or simply share-and-tell. See the Personal Watersheds show in the MWMO galleries. Stations will be set up to explore indigo dyeing, hand stitching, and weaving on the SAORI loom. If this is your first Weaving Water Workshop, you are in for a treat to see what others have made as well as try your hand at something new.

Everyone is invited to bring a small natural item — such as a stone or tiny driftwood under 2-inches square — that you’ve collected from a waterside location. You can explore the banks of the Mississippi River at the MWMO or bring something from your favorite river or lake (or ocean!).

Stitch and dye with indigo a small pouch to wear or carry your waterside treasures in.

About Weaving Water

Weaving Water is an ongoing art project engaging the public in community building through hand craft and connection with water. MWMO Artist-in-Residence Sarah Nassif facilitates hands-on creative experiences that encourage us to see ourselves as vital parts of our watershed systems. The Weaving Water Workshop is both an interactive exhibit at MWMO and in-person workshops for the community to come together and play with fiber, natural indigo dye and cultural cloth traditions from many cultures.
