Text-Tiles: What Tales Do Textiles Tell?

SOCIAL FABRIC WORKSHOP I

Exploring textiles qua social fabric offers opportunities for young people to work with a medium that integrates mind and body, thought and action, and philosophy and technology. Participants create projects with personal value and meaning, while exploring the tapestries of social justice and cultural history: The history of text-tiles is a history of story-telling.
