She will introduce participants to the craftivism movement, her global feminist craftivism project @BadassHERstory, and teach guests how to embroider if you are new to the art form.
Join us, Saturday, April 20, 2019, 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Participants of all ages, genders, and skill levels are encouraged to attend. Space is limited.
Visitors are encouraged to bring their own supplies.
