Scarlet Letter/ Stitch-In-&-Away

Scarletletter

In the exhibit Time and Again Dawn Breeze (artist/ founder of Instar Lodge) shares her Scarlet Letters--two handwork pieces where she transcribed pages of her adolescent diary and a “love” letter from a first boyfriend.  These works reveal intimate knowledge of a young girl that is often kept private, pestering with misguided shame. 

Join artist Dawn Breeze in a transformative group stich-in-&-away.  You are invited to bring with you a word, a phrase, or an actual letter that someone at some point gave you that caused you a feeling of shame.  Through our handwork we will reclaim power over these words, transforming them into our art.  Shame is only shame when it is kept hidden, reveal these words together, stitching them in a way that heals and binds us courageously together.
