Dr. Susan Pavel, Master weaver

Susan Pavel leads an afternoon of collective storytelling through an installment of her ongoing Weaving Words project. Pavel describes the experience: “Born from a place of love and community, the intention of Weaving Words is to bring a blanket loom to a gathering and invite participants to weave a weft of yarn and share a story beckoning to be told.” Through sharing stories with each other over the loom, participants are woven together through laughter, joy, pain, and sorrow.

Space is limited and advance registration at portlandartmuseum.org is strongly encouraged.
