Instructor: Nina Zonneyville

Do you knit, but have always been intimidated by making a pair of socks because you couldn't wrap your head around "turning the heel"? The instructor, Nina Zonnevylle, walks you through the knitting process from the ground up. In this class you will learn the most basic method of sock making, from the cuff to the toe, one at a time. Once you learn the basic method, you will have the skills to tackle the most intricate cable or lace sock patterns or progress to learning the "toe-up" and "two-at-a-time" methods. Spoiler alert: once you've worn handknit socks, you'll never be satisfied wearing anything else.

Britt Fishel and Artists

Sunday, 3/13/2022
2:00PM-3:00PM

Britt Fishel and Artists is an internationally award winning, collaborative, contemporary dance company. Under the direction of Britt Whitmoyer Fishel, the company explores assimilations of the human experience, democratizing and normalizing socioeconomic, political, and identity driven conversations, anchored in intersectional feminism. Through performances and screendances, BF and Artists has a critical lens on sexism, gender bias, and ecofeminism as seen in past and present, while rooted in hope and progression for the future. Their performance is REDACT.

Over time, we have observed extensively in human history, a pervasive gender gap that effectively silences and erases women's accomplishments, experiences, needs, and daily lives. This can be seen through politics, in the workplace, in the home, and in every day occurrences. REDACT speaks specifically to gender data gap and gender politics, while asking why women are still so often unseen, undiscovered, and unimagined. Britt Fishel and Artists premiered REDACT at the Florence Biennale in October 2021 and was granted the "Lorenzo il Magnifico" International Award in Performance for the work.
