As part of New York Textile Month, this workshop will explore the tactile medium of embroidery as a way to address public as well as personal issues during this time of social discord.

Working with simple embroidery stitches, upcycled fabric, and thread, workshop participants will create their own personalized embroidered button to take home at the end of the night.

Join us as we harness the power of craft in a communal setting to create change and healing. No experience necessary; beginners are welcome!

This event is hosted by the Textile/Surface Design Department in conjunction with New York Textile Month.

This is a free event. Space is limited.
