Communal Resuscitation of a Dead Horse: A Workshop on Stop-Motion Embroidery
October 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT
Use your embroidery skills to collaborate on a stop-motion animation together!
In this workshop, participant-collaborators will come together for a few hours of camaraderie and embroidery, each creating a single embroidered horse that, joined together, will become a come to life! Dovetailing with his exhibition Muybridge Studies in Stop Motion Embroidery, Charlie Wilcox will introduce the practical process of creating a work of stop-motion animation using embroidery, supplying each participant with their own individual frame and necessary materials. What will the final animation look like? Half of the fun will come from the Exquisite Corpse approach to collaborative creation! Throughout, Charlie Wilcox will discuss and demonstrate the challenges and pleasures with using fabric and floss as a medium for animation. All workshop participants will be named as collaborators in the exhibition and get to see their collaborative work on display.
Support Our Community Programs
In just over 4 years, Portland TextileX Month (PTXM) has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration, cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and intergenerational exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 40 events and directly sponsored a multitude of FREE programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community events, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM Regeneration Festival has brought together makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing. PTXM would not have been possible without the dedication of event organizers, paid contributors, paid interns, amazing volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.
We hope to continue building PTXM and TextileX website as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come, and that’s where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTXM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider making a direct contribution programming. As a direct contributor, your funds will go directly toward programming, lean administrative expenses, and providing paid internships. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.
