Downtown Dreams

Downtown Dreams: Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

A workshop lead by Gail, Danielle; many women from the Women’s Centre who attended the two sessions on fabric painting and dyeing, as well as women from the fabric arts workshop who continued to embellish the squares. We attempted to fill the shoes of Danica, who originally conceived and planned the workshops. Gail felt profoundly moved by the entire process, from extending her own quilting skills to include more fabric painting and dyeing, to working the women who created each individual square, imbuing them with their own unique stories, talents and enthusiasm.

Creators: Gail, Danielle, and many women from the Women’s Centre
