QUILT DIAMONDS_edited_edited_edited_edited.jpg

ABORTION QUILT TRIANGLE SESSIONS

Our January session of triangle-making was a HUGE success. Studio 9 is committing to sessions every other month.

Claire Barnett at Seattle Mosaic Arts is putting out a nation-wide call for mosaic artists to participate in creating mosaic triangles that will be "sewn" into a large diamond “quilt” becoming a mural promoting reproductive rights for women.  Here is a description:
 
  "Access to safe abortion care is critical to all of us. Even if you have not personally had an abortion, without a doubt someone close to you has. This beautiful community mosaic project visually demonstrates how abortion is part of all our lives. The concept for the quilt is simple. People mosaic small 4” triangles to represent the impact abortion has in their lives and then these small triangles are pieced together into an ever-growing mural. The colors represent the different ways abortion affects us: Orange (I had an abortion), Yellow (my partner had an abortion), Green (a family member had an abortion) or Blue (a friend had an abortion). Our hope is to transform this local project into a national movement. Once people take time to understand how abortion has directly impacted their lives personally it will be very hard to continue to legislate against abortion access. It takes 128 small triangles to create this 5’x3′ diamond. These ever-growing diamonds will then be “quilted” together to create a stunning, powerful mural that can travel around the country, encouraging more people to contribute their own triangles. Please help us showcase this reality by adding your “color” to this quilt".

We will have bi-monthly sessions. Our first three are as follows (we will add more dates in the future):

 
Sunday March 12th
Sunday May 7th
Sunday July 9th

Session 1:  1:00 - 2:30
Session 2:   3:00 - 4:30
 
No cost, but a donation to an organization that supports and promotes women's right to make their own reproductive decisions (without her husband, doctor and a member of congress!) is welcome and encouraged.
  
This is a very simple project, no mosaic experience necessary.

PLEASE READ if you are interested in attending:

  1.  Email Randi at   info@studio9mosaics.com for sign up or more information.

  2. If you want to bring a friend, family member, etc., please, one email to sign up everyone in your group. If everyone signs up individually, you might not all get in.

  3. Be sure when you sign up to specify which session you want to attend, 1:00 or 3:00. Signups are first come, first serve, so if I have to ask which session you want, you may lose your spot.
