This page contains the full details and description for the practical workshop 'Sewing, Eating & Knowledge-Formation', run with Fabienne Gassmann. The press release is left and below, you can see the full thing on the Jupiter Woods website here.
For the workshop, we began with Fabienne teaching participants three basic stitches. Alongside all sewing materials, we provided fabric in a specific page format, and encouraged participants to use these as pages to document the discussions that would unfold throughout the day. These pieces could, if the participants wished, become part of an embroidered manuscript which would document the project. You can see the contributions below.
Whilst participants sewed, and talked, I intermittently punctuated discussion by reading a series of collated quotations from a variety of texts which considered the relationship between evil, knowledge and eating. The quotes ranged from discussing the effects of differing cosmogonies on contemporary world views (particularly the genesis myth of Adam and Eve), to folklore on apples, the use of food as medicine, and the relationship between morality and eating.
