Exploring the Meaning of Textiles Through Time & Place on Wed. Jan 27, 7pm

Judy Newland: Exploring the Meaning of Textiles through Time and Place

Through textiles, we can explore art, society, politics, religion and more, making connections between cultures and through time. Textiles surround and swaddle us from birth to death, a part of the social fabric, bringing meaning to our physical, emotional, and spiritual lives. Join Judy on an adventure using natural dyes, material culture, landscape, and travel to explore textiles through time and place.
