Text-Tiles: Letters from You to Me

SOCIAL FABRIC WORKSHOP II

Workshop II was designed for teenage girls
with diverse backgrounds. Participants viewed specific textiles or tapestries, with fictional times and places of creation. They imagined the textile makers, and conveyed their stories by writing letters forward, from the textile makers in the past to themselves in the present. The letters and textiles were then assembled into keepsake booklets.
