The Web of Connections symposium brings together artists from Interweavings and Remediations to share their work and exchange on the common topics and themes from these two exhibitions curated by Nicole Burisch and Sally Frater. This online gathering will include presentations and workshops around the intersections of technology, textiles, craft, and materiality.
This is an open crafting workshop, facilitated by Gabrielle Trach. Participants are invited to grab a project (possibly that unfinished project that’s been tucked away), maybe a cozy beverage, and join in the tradition of crafting circles. There will be no formal instruction, but participants are encouraged to talk, share ideas, and gather in community.
