Mandala of Hope Stitch Workshop

Workshop Facilitator: Junco Sato Pollack

Friday, March 13, 2020

3:00pm-6:00pm

Molokai Community Health Center

This workshop explores silent mandala stitching as a healing expression, including meditation, kinhin, qigong and shared stories.  No sewing experience required. The created pieces will be video documented and may be added anonymously (if you decide to chose) to Ms. Pollack’s commemorative Mandala of Hope, an interactive art installation that will be on display in her future exhibitions.

Bring: hand-stitching needles, straight pins, scissors, spools of machine sewing or any color threads, fabric scraps (7’x7’ finished size) and additional small scrap fabrics (don’t worry if you do not have these materials as we will have material and supplies available).
