About the Event
The red tent, currently on display at Studio 3, is a collaborative tapestry that began in 2006 by artist and art therapist, Dr. Lesley Reagan. It is a material gathering of histories and blessings which has been present for weddings, births, celebrations, workshops and parades. The people who have participated in this project have placed their blessings, prayers and stories into this tapestry... some of the stories have been shouted during parades, some sewn on and shared in small circles and some stories have been whispered so quietly that only the fabric knows them. You are invited to experience and contribute to this living tapestry. You do not have to be a woman or an artist to participate... the Red Tent Project is for everyone!
In this workshop facilitated by Lesley, you will learn about the project and be invited to contribute in a variety of ways. No previous art experience is necessary. The art workshop is designed for makers 8 years old and up.
