Around the Kitchen Table: Stitching & Community

Around the Kitchen Table: Stitching & Community

Come join Corrie around the kitchen table. The time will be spent stitching, sharing kitchen table memories and building memories together within the workshop group.

This workshop offers hands on and experiential instruction in:

  • basic embroidery, appliqué and cutwork
  • the experience of being part of a community engaged art project
  • and, how hand stitching can be used capture/document an experience.

Participants are asked to arrive with a used tablecloth or piece of fabric that they have shared food on before coming to class and a copy of a recipe they can share a memory about.  Over the two days participants will alter this cloth with needle, thread and scissors while engaging in conversation and learning together.

In addition to stitching techniques participants will also learn about stitching and food in contemporary art, stitching as a recording tool and how approachable community engaged art can be.

All together, this workshop will help build a hands-on vocabulary for using all these materials in the future. Participants will even leave with their own ‘recipe’ for a future community engaged art project.

Corrie Peters (she/her) is an artist in conversation with social practice, fibre art and installation, among other mediums. Her artwork is building relationships that teach her how to listen to and learn from those often silenced through current systems of power. In this she holds so much gratitude for all those who continually teach her about empathy, activism, change and care. Her publicly displayed pieces are documentation of the artwork – translating what she has learnt to a larger audience. She continually finds herself returning to the craft-based materials and techniques of the matriarchs of her family.
