Women’s Craft Circle
The Women’s Craft Circle seeks to bring women together through the healing power of craft-making. Using the art of embroidery, sewing, and other tactile crafts, women are able to relax in a welcoming space every week, connecting through a love for art and shared experiences. We laugh, we share, we enjoy music of our home countries, and on occasion we even dance!
ARTogether’s longest-running workshop series, the Women’s Craft Circle meets every week in a friendly environment and home-like setting, fostering a feeling of community and belonging. Our latest series of workshops is led by Afghan refugees of Oakland, and has committed to making masks for refugees, immigrants, and those in need living in the East Bay. During the recent shelter-in-place ordinances, gatherings have been held weekly online via Zoom workshops.
If you or anyone you know has any new or gently used cotton fabric, elastics, or threads, please donate them to our project! We also appreciate donations of cash or gift cards in support. If you have a donation, please email email@example.com to arrange to drop off materials, or for someone to pick up your contribution.
