Let’s Build Our Festival Banner!
401, Richmond Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 1X3, Canada.
Come decorate a giant banner with us! This drop-in space is for queer community to decorate a large fabric banner that will travel across the city to Bricks & Glitter events and beyond.
Join us online from 4 – 6 PM over Zoom (REGISTER AT THIS LINK!) OR in person from 2 – 6 pm at the Contemporary Textile Co-op (401 Richmond Ave W, Studio 109).
We’re inspired by this year’s theme ~ “My Mycelium”. Mycelium form the root systems of fungi — the largest organisms on Earth! It’s the connective tissue that binds ecosystems together and is vital to the cycles of life and death. Mycelium may be microscopic, and may grow to spread thousands of acres.
Like mycelium, Bricks and Glitter wants to connect creative and social movement lineages to help draw us closer to a world worth living in. Brick & Glitter will supply art materials ready for you to create with!
All levels of experience in crafting + sewing are welcome! All ages welcome. Experienced textile artists will be present to offer their skills and support participants as requested.
