Heather Marie Scholl's teaching ranges from the basic how to's of embroidery, knitting, and sewing, to craftivism courses, and her latest project collaboration, Confronting White Womanhood. Through everything she brings her expertise, patience and compassion.
Sewing circles have often been a place for women to come together share experiences and organize, and so is this one. Learn a variety of embroidery techniques, including outline stitches, fill stitches, padding, etc. This is a safe space to discuss politics, dismantling oppression, etc. Sessions occur every month and are adapted based on skill and needs of those enrolled.
Organizers Sophie Ellman-Golan, Rhiannon Childs, and Heather Marie Scholl (two white women and one Black woman) designed the Confront White Womanhood workshop to interrogate the ways white supremacy manifests within feminist spaces.
For centuries, violence has been done in the name of—and even physically enacted by—white women. By examining historical contexts in conjunction with personal story-sharing exercises, we confront how white supremacy shows up in our own behavior. Through vulnerable discussions about individual complicity, we empower attendees to disrupt white supremacy from within their own communities.
Private to semi-private classes available. From beginner to immediate, classes adapted based on skill of those enrolled. Learn to cast on and knit and purl, cables, colorwork, or my favorite lace knitting and understanding charts.
