Saturday 9 May 2020
2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
In response to the current directives to ‘stay at home’, we’ve re-shaped our regular ‘Crafternoon Tea’ gathering from the usual face-to- face crafting catch up held at Fabrik to this special online gathering using Zoom.
Our ‘Crafter-Zoom-Tea’ will offer an opportunity to connect and to share creativity from afar. The format of the session will include a brief round of ‘Show + Tell introductions’ from each participant sharing their craft-in-progress, followed by a ‘studio-talk’ from our special guest artist Sera Waters, finishing up with an opportunity for a bit of Q&A .
Sera is an Adelaide based textile artist who is behind the #SurvivalistSampler craft movement – where anyone is invited to join in, stitching their own sampler as a way of recording and documenting the new terms, our personal reflections and paying witness to the COVID-19 pandemic . Sera’s incredible skills for intricate stitching techniques coupled with her capacity to convey meaningful and heartfelt themes through the medium of contemporary textiles makes her an excellent choice as our first ‘special guest speaker’.
We hope that you’ll register and join us from your home, with your crafting work-in-progress, a cuppa and an afternoon tea treat of choice on hand.
For the purposes of good timekeeping, participant numbers have been capped and we encourage you to deliver your ‘Show +Tell introductions’ in three breaths.
Once registered, you’ll receive an email from Fabrik (on the next business day), sharing the Zoom login link, the session password and a few more details to help the session run smoothly.
We can’t wait to see you all and craft together once more.
For any queries, feel welcome to email René via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
