Ruth Souza presents: Mending As Metaphor - Finding Community by Slow Stitching in a Fast Paced World


Some Highlights:


Presenting Mending as Metaphor to my wonderful colleagues at TSA was an honor and a joy.


Offering a mending session for the students at SCAD with Susan Brown who helped curate the Scraps Show at The Cooper Hewitt in NYC and Nika Feldman, textile artist extraordinaire, was a great pleasure.


TSA is an important organization for the deeper understanding of textiles and a place where scholars and artists share knowledge.
