Join us for performances and workshops focused on the art of textiles. Throughout the weekend, Chicago-based artists and married couple Dutes Miller and Stan Shellabarger will perform their ongoing piece Untitled (Pink Tube), a performance started in 2003 during which they simultaneously crochet at opposite ends of a long tube of pink yarn. Friday evening from 5-8pm, St. Louis-based artist Basil Kincaid will set up an interactive quilt-making station. On Saturday, designers from SKIF International will host a pop-up production studio where visitors can help make shirts featuring the vibrant designs of Filipino artist Robe Stein. Shirts will be available for purchase at a discounted rate. Knitting circles are also welcome to bring their projects.
