Design Bar Activity: Subversive Cross-stitch

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States

Drop in to MODA’s Design Bar on between 3 - 5:30 p.m. on July 16 to explore subversive cross-stitch. Cross-stitch is a type of embroidery in which the needlework creates images that look pixelated. Traditionally a way for society to measure a woman’s marriageability, cross-stitch has recently become a vehicle for craftivism (craft activism) and used to assert diverse identities and demand social change. Grab  a needle and thread and fabric and join us as we co-opt traditional designs or create entirely new ones that command attention and express your beliefs.

In the spirit of our current exhibition, Luba Lukova: Designing Justice, we’ll delve into this small sliver of the craftivist movement. Bring your passion and we’ll provide the hoops, needles, and thread. Just pay $5 here or at the front desk when you arrive, and head over to the Design Bar!

$5 participation and materials fee.

This Design Bar Activity does not include the cost of admission to MODA's current exhibition.
