Portraits of Water
Embroidering by hand is a calming, relaxing, meditative process, a little like spending time at your favorite lake. Join us while we paint portraits in thread while listening to the soothing sounds of water in nature in this special workshop with musician and sound artist Aida Shahghasemi and friends at The Resonance Box in South Minneapolis.
When was the last time you paid close attention to how you were listening? The Resonance Box is a small initiative with the intention of bringing focus to the world of auditory experiences.
Hearing has not only been a way for us to enjoy beautiful music, but it has also played a key role in our survival as a species. And even today the study and use of sound remains an important aspect of our research into the unknown territories of the cosmos. The artists at The Resonance Box hope to bring attention to this wonderous sensory process. Learn more about Aida, her beautiful music, and all the fascinating things they are up to at The Resonance Box.
No embroidery experience is required for this workshop, Portraits of Water. We'll be there to help you learn new stitches, choose your colors, and sew a portrait of your favorite Minneapolis Lake ( Lake of the Isles, Bde Make Ska, Cedar, Harriet or Nokomis) or if you prefer, practice your stitches in concentric circles, like a ripple spreading slowly on the surface.
$80 includes all materials, 3 hours of instruction and all the sounds you can hear! We'd love to have you join us. Click here to register.
