Program Description

Join artist Maria Hupfield as she teaches visitors how to design and hand-stitch personalized medallions using industrial felt worn on the body. Participants with cut, sew, and embellish circular pieces of felt that will then be embellished with beaded trim and small metal tin cones made into various hand-cut geometric designs.

The creation of the medallions will be driven by conversations with Hupfield, an artist-in-residence in the exhibition Studio Views: Craft in the Expanded Field, who will lead a dialogue inspired by indigenous feminisms and ideas around cultural value. Specifically, participants will look at indigenous cultures and their relationships to history, the environment, colonialism, and capitalism.
