Friday and Saturday 10-4 at North House!

Weaving Water is a new public art project by Minnesota artist Sarah Nassif exploring the intersections of water, weaving, and community. Take part in an experimental dyeing and weaving session, try out natural dyeing to create weft material. Feel free to bring cloth from home to cut into strips for dyeing and weaving. White or neutral colors are best, for example old t-shirts, tea towels, pillowcases, or sheets. 

Sarah Nassif is a fiscal year 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Building  a Neighborhood Together

Building a Neighborhood Together

Building a Neighborhood Together is a community felting project to map a changing neighborhood. Participants get a chance to try both needle and wet felting to complete an element of the neighborhood: streets, the Mississippi River, and all the creatures, vehicles and buildings found in the community. All of the elements will be assembled into a 6’x8’ felted map of the Prospect Park neighborhood.

Several chances to participate are planned, and the next is at Harvest Fest in the Prospect Park Neighborhood. All supplies are provided by Textile Center. Work directly with the artist to contribute to this community public art piece.

Funded by Prospect Park Co-op Legacy Fund and Textile Center Supporters.
