Weaving Community: Transforming Trauma with Textile Art

Throughout history people have used available materials to decide where home is, creating sites of resistance to dislocation and dominating narratives. Textile arts are one way to map memories, document family history, and locate ourselves. Through discussion and hands-on activities, we will explore various forms of textile art including weaving, crochet, quilting, and embroidery. We will discuss how individuals and communities can use textiles to heal from displacement, trauma, and marginalization.
