Honoring the past, our ancestors, our land, our guardians, and their sacrifices, we continue the journey toward the future by adding our knowledge, skills, ambitions, and light. -Mee Jey
Become a co-weaver of ‘Cape of Continuity’, a communal weaving workshop led by St. Louis artist Mee Jey. This workshop is inspired by our current exhibition Delcy Morelos: Interwoven and ancestral cultural wisdom passed along generations as blessings. Taking place in the museum’s lower main gallery, participants are invited to use objects provided or bring in objects such as beads, bells, or ornaments to add to the weaving. Workshop leaders will guide participants in the interlocking of these items with ribbon and yarn, creating a communal cape to be worn by the artist at a performance this summer. Drop in at any time and stay for as long as you please.
Please note that items brought into the gallery must not exceed hand size and should not be fragile, sharp, or made of stainable material.
This free workshop is open to all ages and abilities. Registration is encouraged, but not required. Please contact email@example.com if you have questions regarding objects to bring or require any accommodations to participate.
