Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art

Stitch n’ Bitch Workshops

**Part of (dis)location (dis)connect (dis)appearance, June 20-August 10, curated by Diane Hau Yu Wong.**

As a method to explore and rediscover their roots, a number of artists in the exhibition have employed textile, an often time-consuming medium, to explore familial relationships and their diasporic identity.

Join us in reflecting upon craft as a cultural medium while learning hands-on textile art techniques from artists in the exhibition and other local textiles artists and organizations. Bring your own project or start something new with other textile-minded souls.

Stitch n’ Bitch sessions will launch on June 20 before the opening reception, and take place every Saturday until the end of the exhibition.
