Drawing with Scissors: Molas from Kuna Yala

This is a not-to-be-missed exhibit at the Textile Museum of Canada in Toronto, ON. Curated by Max Allen, it runs until February 13, 2011.  This Sunday (September 12) at 2:00 p.m., tapestry artist Ixchel Suarez will be touring the exhibit.

The history of the Mola, a reverse applique method practiced by the Kuna tribe in Panama, is a fastinating one. Using many layers of cloth, a needle and thread, the Kuna create colourful geometric and pictorial panels. Visit the exhibition web page and plan your visit for this Sunday or soon.
