Weaving is historically connected to female empowerment. This craft is all about telling individual and collective narratives through textiles. Through this perspective, the craft becomes a medium of self-affirming and confidence building – qualities we find in empowered women, women that we aspire to be one day. In the spirit of Women’s month, we proposed this workshop as an opportunity to invite people to celebrate the strong females in their lives by learning the ancient technique of weaving.
