Stitch with Diana Weymar, creator and curator of the international Tiny Pricks Project. Be part of the massive public art undertaking Diana has curated–which is tying its last knots in anticipation of the Presidential inauguration. Diana describes the project as follows:
“Desperate times, creative measures. Contributors from around the world are stitching Donald Trump’s words into textiles, creating the material record of his presidency and of the movement against it. Tiny Pricks Project holds a creative space in a tumultuous political climate. The collection counterbalances the impermanence of Twitter and other social media, and Trump’s statements as president through the use of textiles that embody warmth, craft, permanence, civility, and a shared history. The daintiness and integrity of each piece stand in stark contrast to his presidency.”
Ages 14 – Adult. Limited scholarships available. Please contact Erin at 802.367.1306 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Diana Weymar is an artist and activist who grew up in the wilderness of Northern British Columbia, studied creative writing at Princeton University, and worked in film in New York City.
