Thread Lines is an Artist-in-Residence with Dutch textile artist Farida Sedoc at Brooklyn’s Wyckoff House Museum, bridging heritage with contemporary culture to explore our relationships with fabric, fibers, and textiles.
Using self-made sukumo, BUAISOU creates a fermenting vat following an ancient recipe called Jigokudate. In conjunction with New York Textile Month, BUAISOU Brooklyn hosts an open studio and Fresh Leaf Dyeing Workshops on Sunday September 18, 1-5pm.
On Sunday, September 18, from 12pm-3pm, the WE GATHER studio will host a Weaving Bee, which is a brunch-time installment of our ongoing creative series, Crafts And Laughs. We will host up to 10 people for this event. This is a time when anyone can bring their own frame loom or rigid heddle loom (or any other portable weaving device) and sit with other textile-minded people for an afternoon of weaving, laughing, learning, and chatting. The goal is to strengthen the textile community, make new friends, share weaving tips and wisdom, and enjoy each other's company. Any level of experience is welcome, though each participant should bring their own loom and desired yarns/materials. WE GATHER will offer up portions of our yarn stash for sampling, and we will provide light snacks and beverages.
On Saturday, September 17, WE GATHER will host Open Studio hours from 11am-5pm, during which anyone can come to the WE GATHER studio, view our equipment and supplies, and see some of the steps of our dyeing and weaving processes. Visitors will have the opportunity to sit down at our loom and weave with some of our hand-dyed yarns, contributing to a "community cloth." The community cloth will then be sold on wegathergoods.com with all proceeds being donated to a Women For Women, an international charitable organization that works directly with women in eight countries offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.
