Join Craftswoman House on Saturday June 14th for Secrets and Confessions, a series of new pieces by Liz Young. For this project, Young collected private confessions from anonymous participants and embroidered their words onto the surface of found objects. Young serves as an unreliable confident as secrets are transferred from the private to the public realm. Her process reflects the way that secrets often circulate in our daily lives, and she invites viewers to divulge their own confessions as contributions to the exhibit.
Saturdays June 21 & June 28, 12-4: Liz Young will offer open workshops to introduce students to the materials and techniques of hand embroidery. She will teach students basic skills such as stabilizing and hooping, design placement, and a variety of hand stitches. During these workshops, students may choose to contribute their own secrets and confessions to Young’s exhibition.
