Sasha de Koninck, an Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance PhD student and a member of the Unstable Design Lab, will host a virtual “Future Heirlooms Workshop” at the Textiles from Home: Local Crafts, Global Conversations Conference on March 17, 3-5 p.m. MDT. During the workshop, participants will work with materials around them to create a future textile heirloom to be used for a specific future moment. Textiles from Home is a project of the Design Studies Department and the Center for Design and Material Culture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and conference presentations focus on connections between textile making, domestic space, and local environments, historically and now. The conference includes sessions on “such of-the-moment crazes” as artful mending, embroidery, women in fiber mills and Scottish wool.
