Weaving circles "Mojhtesh Gurredh"
Rezgauche and Humans & Soil invites you to join weaving/sewing circles involving a movement workshop.
The project "Mojhtesh Gurredh" is created by the organisation Humans & Soil which focuses on Indigenous (Sámi) artistic practices. "Mojhtesh gurredh" in South Sámi language mean something like "weaving stories" where dancers Marit Shirin Carolasdotter (SE/IZ) and Linnéa Sundling (SE) is sharing their practices on weaving traditional Sámi shoebands together with movement.
We meet and weave or sew together. You're welcome to bring whatever you like, maybe something ordinary or connected to everyday life, a memory from someone you want to recreate… Maybe clothes that you want to mend. We learn basic principles of weaving shoebands from our Indigenous culture. We work with our hands, talk and drink coffee with Swedish “fika”. Together we explore the prescence of our bodies in the room we create. We might write something down about our experiences. You should bring: Something to weave, sow or mend or any other textile material. Pen and paper.
