As part of the textile month at Arbor Gallery, this interactive workshop will be presented by textile artist France Poliquin. In this session, she will talk about the various textile forms, from weaving, crochet, knitting, beading, lace, embroidery and felting - covering are they are made and their history.

France Poliquin studied textile art at the Nova Scotia College of Art College and Design, and has explored many aspects of textile art with various projects throughout the years. She learned beading with Indigenous women and was invited to participate to a traveling collective exhibition of traditionally made masks titled Breathe, which has been displayed in various Canadian museums since 2020.

This workshop is an introduction and exploration and is presented free of charge at the Arbor Gallery.
