GRRRL Fest, a benefit celebrating young women in the arts, drew from the radical feminist politics of the Riot Grrrl era. As a featured artist, I designed and held an interactive art space where participants could learn embroidery stitched on pre-designed patches. In relying on the public’s participation, this piece drew from and contributed to embroidery’s history as an education and political tool. The use of patches as a means of learning new skills speaks to the d.i.y. empowerment movement of the Riot Grrrl era. Each patch was designed around a theme of feminist body politics, available as a platform for participants to express themselves and foster discussion around the issues. An instructional zine was also provided.
