Led by artist Melissa Blount, this workshop explores the artistic legacies of Black women quilters in the South, discussing the connections between quilting, mothering, and creative work as a means of resistance. Afterwards, participants are invited to make fabric squares for a quilt commemorating incarcerated survivors of domestic violence.
Childcare will be available!
