Field Trip: Threads of Time, Sunday, November 19th
Join us for outings to explore interesting textile and design exhibits, destinations or to meet some of the most talented and creative people in the sewing and textile industry in Atlanta and the southeast. Each field trip will be unique, but each will include an outing to an exhibit or to meet a designer and visit their studio, learn about their work and process, enjoy a great lunch and often explore something else interesting nearby.
Threads of Time: Tradition and Change in Indigenous American Textiles at Michael C Carlos Museum, Emory
From the museum web site:
Fiber arts were of the highest importance among the First Nations, or indigenous peoples of the Americas. Ancient Andean as well as modern Andean, Panamanian, and Guatemalan cultures will be featured in the exhibition, including a wide range of techniques such as three-dimensional embroidery, tie-dye, brocade, and tapestry. The exhibition will explore how these beautiful and complex textiles embody the traditional values, materials, and ideas of their respective indigenous cultures, while also embracing new techniques, imagery, and types of objects as they change during colonial and modern times.
*Although it is a group outing, transportation is not included. Everyone will need to make individual transportation arrangements.
