Mend with Mirrors

Saturday, Jul 27, 2019 - 2:00 PM-3:30 PM

Shisha (mirror) embroidery is widespread in the Indian subcontinent and combines traditional motifs and designs with ideas of self-reflection. Used in a doorway hanging, it is rumored to ward off the evil eye. Learn about the process from artist Bhavna Mehta. Limited to 12 participants; advance registration required.

This program is presented as part of To Do · A Mending Projecta participatory exhibition conceived of by artists Michelle Montjoy, Anna O’Cain, and Siobhán Arnold in response to the escalation of political, social, and economic tensions in the United States that have increased a sense of divisiveness within our culture. These artists will organize and teach a series of workshops on topics ranging from traditional, domestic, and repair tasks to movement, breathing, and sound.
