March for Workshops / Needle and Thread by Anna Theocharaki

tags: workshop

The workshop will be presented by the artist Anna Theocharaki and will be about the processing of threads in order to create jewelry. Anna Theocharaki’s concept is based on the idea that the needle is an extension of the body, while thread is an extension of the mind. The tracks of mind are imprinted forever on the cloth, but the needle leaves when its work is done. The needle is a medium, a mystery, a reality, a hermaphrodite, a barometer, a moment and a Zen. Kimsooja.


The workshop is addressed to everyone and there is no need for the participants to have any past knowledge about the workshop’s subject.
Limited seats available. To participate in the workshops contact us at home@theartfoundation.gr or at 210 3238 757.

Free admission with open contribution.
