Guild member Maisha Sullivan’s many community projects have sent her around the world. So how does she find the time to found and run a multimedia crafting group? It must be a labor of love because it lets her combine her passion for community activism with her other passion, art.
Maisha organizes a crafting workshop every four months as therapy for a group of women who are social activists in Philadelphia. The next one, which will be held on September 14, is a Clay Play Day. These women, who deal with some tough social issues, enjoy a place where they can can kick back, relax, learn about a new craft and enjoy a pot luck lunch.
Each workshop has a minimum of thirty women and girls participating and a minimum of four different craft projects with preference given to projects made from recycled materials. Participants demonstrate for one another.
Tomorrow, Ellen Marshall and I will crank up our pasta machines and head to West Philly to demonstrate polymer clay techniques for the group.
