Join Georgina Reskala at the San Francisco Arts Commissions for “Woven Voices / Voces Entretejidas” a textile workshop that brings people together to create a collective work.
“For this workshop, participants are invited to share their stories and write their fears, troubles, heartaches, and wishes on a piece of fabric and attach them to a larger textile work on view in the gallery. By joining in community and engaging in the act of sewing we can begin to mend ourselves and our world. Reskala invites you to ‘leave’ your troubles and wishes on the tapestry where she will hold space for them and for you.
Reskala started this project three years ago at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to stay connected with her loved ones. After seeing how impactful this simple gesture of holding space for others was, Reskala grew the project to include women’s voices from places far and wide. With this workshop, she continues to hold space and heal together with newfound community.
Materials provided by the artist including hand-dyed fabric using avocados from Mexico. Refreshments also provided.”
The event will take place on MARCH 25, 2023 from 1:00 PM TO 4:00 PM at the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Main Gallery
401 Van Ness, Ste. 125,
San Francisco, CA 94102
