Embroidery Workshop: Stitching Trauma into Resilience
14:00 – 16:00
Join us for a two-hour therapeutic embroidery workshop as we reconcile with a part of our past.
This immersive experience will guide participants in using embroidery to process and form new perspectives from unpleasant memories. Prior to the workshop, participants will have to share a chosen image, signifying a specific memory that may be traumatic for them.
All materials will be provided and participants may choose to continue working on their embroidered images in their own time after the workshop.
Based in Singapore, Crystal Sim uses imagery and textiles to portray the intangible side of mental health, a practice largely inspired by personal experience and process-led exploration.
A graduate (BFA, Photography and Digital Imaging) of the Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media, she has participated in exhibitions and festivals in Singapore, the USA, and Mainland China, and was awarded the 2020 Kwek Leng Joo Prize of Excellence in Photography.
