Transform acres of silk into 100 hand-dyed art scarves. Add in original poetry and pattern.  Print, cut, stitch and release! These wraps will be given to women living with and surviving cancer in diverse communities. Together we will consider the scarf as canvas; as talisman, as dialogue. Explore words and graphics funneled through basic dye, print and piecing techniques.  Discover how pop up studio practices allows the artist to work in unconventional spaces, reaching hidden communities.
