Join us for this special event and be part of a live knitting circle, connecting with your community while contributing to artist Kate
Just's latest art project entitled Conversation Piece. Extended from Just's exhibition Self
Care Action Series, this
public knitting circle celebrates the rich traditions of women crafting textiles collectively and creates space for participants of
all genders to engage with conversations, share stories, and generate something powerful as a community.
Conversation Piece will act as a live, ongoing material documentation of collective making, gathering, talking, and listening. Conversation Piece is created in various shades of yellow. Yellow is the artist’s favourite colour. For her, yellow is the colour of spring flowers, the sun, honey and gold. It is a colour of warmth, light, joy, and exuberance. In this work, the colour yellow speaks to the optimism, openness and warmth that occurs when we work collectively, and open ourselves to new people, ideas and experiences.
Crochet needles and yarn will be provided at this event.
