The Friends of William Grant Still Arts Center invite you to get creative and making at a hands-on doll making workshop for all levels and ages with renowned doll making artist Stephanie Moore.
For this up coming Work Shop, Stephanie will be instructing participants in the making of Arpilleras!
“Arpilleras were intended to be formally simple and accessible to everyday women with no artistic training. Given the scant resources of the Vicariate of Solidarity and the individual workshop participants, arpilleras were made from the cheapest available materials, such as flour sacks, scraps of cloth, used thread, and discarded objects.Most arpilleras were constructed from thick hessian canvasses, with colorful pieces of fabric stitched together in appliqué style to form images of people, buildings, city streets, and landscapes. Many included three-dimensional elements, such as small dolls stitched atop the fabric. Arpilleras were often characterized by the tension between the vibrant, colorful imagery created by the woven pieces of fabric and their serious imagery and somber political messages.”
Everyone of all ages are welcome to join the fun in showing their creative sides.
There will be a workshop fee of $15 (cash or check only).
