Fabrics in Our Lives is
a new program for 2012 offered by True North Foundation, for seniors
and adults mentored by seniors, bringing the tradition of textiles
into the context of our local living environment.
In this program, under
the mentorship of Nancy Tordoff-Ives, seniors and adults create and
realize original embroidery and other fabric designs based on
observing local native plant species and visual impressions found
regionally in our community in Southern Ontario.
These natural motifs
will embellish a variety of personal projects, including practical
everyday items such as placemats, runners, and tablecloths as a
recreation of traditional needlecrafts.
If you would like more
information on this program or would just like to join in, please
call our office at 416-322-5596.
