Embroidery workshop

8. March 2020 Embroidery workshop

Do you want to grapple with embroidery, or maybe you are already into needle and thread and would like to take part in the creation of an embroidered work? Then read on here.

In collaboration with the Trapholt Museum, textile designer Iben Høj, has launched the ‘Borderless Sting’ project. At the Reunification in 1920, embroidery became important as a national symbol-creating activity. Today – 100 years later – the embroidery is experiencing a renaissance with enthusiasts in all ages. Iben Høj’s idea is to create a work with contributions from embroidering citizens who, in workshops across the country, give their reflections on and interpretations of boundaries we experience in life.

A. Petersen hosts one of these workshops. It takes place on Sunday, March 8, from 1 to 4PM. The workshop offers a brief introduction to the project and, of course, plenty of time for embroidery and fun. Materials will be provided for the embroidery workshop on the day. To participate, you must already have an A. Petersen Annual pass or buy one. There is a limited number of seats and registration is required. Signing up: tinewessel@email.dk

During the spring of 2020, Iben Høj will gather all the contributions in a large work entitled Borderless Sting. And all participants will be invited to the opening in mid-May at Trapholt, where the work will be exhibited through end of October 2020.
