Part of programming related to the exhibition Karen Hampton: The Journey North
To recount her complex family history, Los Angeles–based artist Karen Hampton combines the art of embroidery with found textiles and a multitude of textile techniques, giving voice to long-forgotten stories about the African-American experience. In this workshop, participants will their own storytelling using a collage of different materials and techniques to tell stories of their family and community. Please bring three pieces of old cloth (clothing, found or collected), embroidery needles and scissors. Feel free to bring food.
