Learn a new way to celebrate feminist icons at MODA on Sunday, April 1 from 12:30-3 p.m. Because these incredible people deserve to be celebrated and channeled as we launch into the new year, weâ€™re having a special edition of MODAâ€™s subversive cross-stitch workshop where we'll be stitching feminist icons.
Cross-stitch is a type of embroidery in which the needlework creates images that look pixelated. Traditionally a way for society to measure a womanâ€™s marriageability, cross-stitch has recently become a vehicle for craftivism (craft activism) and used to assert diverse identities and demand social change. Grab a needle and thread and fabric and join us in this special cross stitch class!
Youâ€™ll learn about how cross-stitch got to be subversive, cross-stitching basics, design creation, and how to bring that design into reality. Bring your passion and weâ€™ll provide the hoops, needles, embroidery floss, and patterns of feminist icons.
Participation and Materials Fee: $35 for non-members, $30 for MODA members. Or, bring along a friend and pay $50 for a Buddy Pack for Two Adults. This fee covers everything you need to create and bring home your own awesome cross stitch: 4" hoop, AIDA cloth, needle, threader, embroidery floss, and many patterns of feminist icons to choose from. Fee includes admission to MODAâ€™s current exhibition, Text Me: How We Live In Language. Appropriate for ages 16+. Please reach out to the facilitator, Jess Lewis if you have questions or accessibility needs.
