Hidden Memories

Sometimes pieces can tell stories….. “Hidden Memories: the Ravages of Dementia” is from my Spirit Women series. She is 11″ tall, coiled and stitched with cloths that hold a memory.

Snow Farm calls itself The New England Craft Program, and rightly so!!! It offers wonderful workshops, in a fabulous location with great food. It is a creative community that welcomes everyone. Best of all, it is only an hour away, in Williamsburg, MA.

Three BWA members teach there: Marta Bernbaum, Naomi Lindenfeld, and myself (Jackie Abrams). Come and join us for one of our classes.

Work in progress.....

Coil and stitch, coil and stitch, a time-honored basketry technique. (I think) the name of this piece is “Hidden Memories: The Ravages of Dementia.” Much of the cloth being used already has memories, of being worn and loved.
