Workshop: Can It Be My Home? with Artist Hangama Amiri

Join us for a special fabric workshop led by artist Hangama Amiri. Participants will learn directly from Amiri about her work and practice, while reflecting and sharing their own ideas of home, whether it is a place, a person, a dish, a scent, or an object. Amiri will lead the group through a process of developing ideas into drawings and further into a textile piece to take back home.
