Wednesday, September 21 at 7:30pm In Person & Virtual

Artist Talk:  Julie Gladstone

INSTAGRAM   FACEBOOK  WEBSITE

My textile work incorporates repurposed domestic textiles, free style embroidery and knitting. I re-interpret and adapt Jewish ceremonial items, Sephardic iconography, and imagery from the Kabbalah Tree of Life to innovate contemporary forms of Jewish textiles from a feminist lens. By tapping into the hidden mystical, embodied, and shamanic roots of Judaism, these pieces consider the concept of Tikkun Olam as the basis for healing and story telling through the creation of contemporary magical textiles. 

In this artist talk I will talk about the creative process I developed after inheriting knitted and embroidered shawls and tablecloths from my Sephardic grandmother and great grandmother. I will share stories about my return to the medieval village in Spain from which my ancestors were exiled in 1492,  my research into my matrilineal line, and subsequent creation of  garments based on my discovery of a rich female Sephardic tradition of textiles, music, amulet making and folk healing.  

Stay tuned for more details….

Hands On:  Beads, beads, they’re good for your art…..

Fabric beads can be made in different ways, and used in interesting ways. 
 
It is an excellent way to take scraps from our favourite projects and use them in our art.
 
We will see how fabric beads are made, how they are used, and get started on our own fabric bead adventure.
 
If you are attending virtually, you will need the following:
  • a drinking straw
  • a glue stick
  • fabric strips about 1 1/2 inch wide by about 7″ long
If you have any questions, email info@pomegranateguild.ca
