Dig in to the Community Read:
Join us March 22 for Part 2
Catch up now (or skip ahead) to join us for the second half of “Women’s Work: The First 20,000 Years.”
Meticulously researched and full of detail–sure to spark a conversation about what has, and hasn’t, changed.
March 22, 6:30p: “Women’s Work: the First 20,000 Years” by Elizabeth Wayland Barber, Chapters 7-Postscript
As you read, please note or select a quotation(s) from each chapter that highlights the following to augment our discussion:
a) description of a technique you are familiar/unfamiliar with
b) a fact from history that surprises or resonates with you
c) a process/idea that is reflected in your own life or creative journey
Because the book is rather detailed, take additional notes as needed.
Group info: The WGM Community Read is an informal gathering of members who explore writings related to weaving, spinning, dyeing, fiber and history. We meet 3-4 times per year to discuss a chosen book and related themes. Discussions are led by guild librarian Mary Skoy. Members are encouraged to reflect on their own experiences, share photos of related textile samples, and bring their questions. We meet over Zoom and the meeting info is published in the Draft. For occasional reminders about meetings, email Mary Skoy to be put on the Community Read list: maryskoy@hotmail.com
