My upcoming ancestral healing workshop with quilter Zak Foster.
A friend once shared, how the women in her family quilted together and how it was a place of sharing sorrows and joy. I imagine a place of healing. She also spoke of 'Treating friends like family and family like friends.
Addie, I love this creative article and photos ... I remember well a powerful creativity workshop a quilter from many miles away came to present at Exploring Creativity workshop in Lockhart Prison in 2001- she took hours cutting various wallpaper samples into shapes and gave each inmate a sheet of good sturdy art paper and they could choose hands-full of colorful samples to paste & create their quilts about family memories. She had grown up as a child sitting under her aunts and the quilters feet then began her own art. Many inmates found meaning and release of memories as we sat in circles cutting, pasting snd quilting... and story telling of course!
