Using beautiful fabrics made in the Natural Dye Workshop on 8/27, Opening of the art installation on 9/10 (Sat) 4-6 PM
I did a workshop on Saturday at Two Coves Community Garden @twocovesgarden Astoria. 25 participants created beautiful scarfs by printing plants from the garden and using paints that I made also with the plants. I never had such a fun community day here in my neighborhood! So grateful for the opportunity to do this which was made possible by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. And many thanks to all who joined this event!
Now I’m going to install an art installation “Tree, Temple, and My Scarf” by sewing all those scarfs together and wrap a tree and a pyramid sculpture to create a dialogue about humans and nature, the spiritual and mundane world, and industrial and ecological structure. Please save the date for the opening on 9/10 4-6 pm!
