RETREAT DAYS at the TETT Centre September 25 and 26th - an opportunity for eight stellar art enthusiasts to come together for a live, two-day sewing and stitching escape into the world of art!! I am sharing a bit of the fun and accomplishment with you here...
The room was opened into one-half of the TETT downstairs Arts Gallery, which meant that we had tons of room space for self-distancing and each of the stitchers had room to work, breathe and remain safe under the Kingston Frontenac Health Unit protocols that are in place. Thanks to Tett Staff for assisting with the extra space allocation!
A commitment to wearing their face masks all day for 6 hours straight both days was a requirement and the artists who were working together in this Retreat were bold, committed, and did just that! We shared lunchtime out of doors, and we had some great conversations over the work tables that included how we are each managing through this difficult time. Most agreed that having the peace and joy of hand and machine work to fill some of our days is a blessing.
I have not enjoyed a retreat more than this session - and look forward to seeing all eight of these artists again one day soon!
