Memory Patterns

Textile Techniques




1 pm - 4 pm

Over the past 4 months, members of the Fort Greene Grant Square Senior Center have participated in “Textile Techniques: Memory Patterns” workshops with artist Raquel Berrios through a BAC SPARC program. Seniors learned textile design techniques including two-dimensional repeat design, printing, appliqué and basic lap loom weaving to bring their designs to life.  The group is excited to share their work in an exhibition and celebration.

SPARC is a collaboration among the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and the City's five local arts councils situated in each borough – Brooklyn Arts Council, Bronx Council on the Arts, Council on the Arts and Humanities of Staten Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Queens Council on the Arts. It was developed as part of Age-Friendly NYC, a citywide effort to make the City more livable for seniors, and previously ran in 2011-2012 after a successful pilot called Space for Art in 2009.  The 2012-2013 SPARC program is supported, in part, by public funds from the Department for the Aging.
