A workshop taken by artist Anna Winther which is directly linked to A(r)t Home Zine's first issue 'Food for Thought'.
Using hand-dyed thread from natural food dyes, the workshop will involve sewing into previous consumed fruit skin. Anna Winther's practice often focuses on performing domestic labour tasks as a way of reconnecting to her heritage. In today's context, we have all been quarantined in our own private spheres or bubbles due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Anna invites you to participate in this group performance to not only reconnect to the history of the home through domestic labour tasks, but to reconnect with each other through conversation and collective experience during a time of physical distance.
The workshop will be held on zoom at
