Gather Round: Weaving in a Circle Our Mixed Identities

October 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT

Explore mesmerizing patterns, cultural threads, and individual identity. Unveil your personal object’s tale.

Circular weaving is more than just a craft, it’s a reflective and transformative process that has the power to intertwine various aspects of our lives. Our individual identities are deeply interwoven with our techniques, practices, cultures, places, and communities. Just as threads are meticulously woven together to create a cohesive textile, our backgrounds and experiences shape the way we approach art. Through this workshop, Orquidia Violeta intends to explore how our cultural identities influence our creative choices, whether it’s the color palette we select, the patterns we weave, or the stories we tell through our art.

Please bring something personal to add to your weaving.
You may pick up the piece you created anytime until the end of the display period.

The works will be on display until November 22nd.

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.
