“In Concert” – A Presentation By Manonik
“In concert” – the Manonik’s maiden presentation – will showcase ten pieces of garments that are unapologetically and painstakingly hand-crafted in concert with its proximate material culture and experimental textile-making processes. The presentation is part of a fundraising event for Freedom Ladder. Please follow the ticket link below.
Every garment creation at Manonik begins with curating the finest local and domestic fibers. Manonik collaborates with farmers, artisans, and family-owned mills to craft its materials. The manual processes Manonik is using to create the textiles for this collection include: self-developed three-dimensional pattern weaving, traditional hand-weaving, manual machine-knitting, hand-spinning, machine sewing, felting, natural dyeing without mordants, and indigo dyeing.
Since its inception in 2014, Manonik’s contributions to American textile arts have been recognized through artist residencies at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, New York and, most recently, at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. The studio is humbly located In Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Friday, Sept 8th @ 7pm (Doors open at 6pm)
Location: 296 9th Ave, New York, NY 10001
