Creative Nights: Rad Rug Hooking with Libbie Farrell
Chroma NB’s Creative Nights are monthly art events, held exclusively by and for 2SLGBTQIA+ and gender diverse individuals that aim to foster a safe space where participants can make friends, learn a new skill, and creatively nurture their sense of self within a community of like-minded individuals. Always free of charge. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if transportation to the event is a barrier.
Libbie Farrell (they/she) is a white settler and interdisciplinary artist from rural Alberta, on Treaty 6 Territory. They are currently based in Sackville New Brunswick where they are completing their Bachelor of Fine Arts at Mount Allison University. Their work is interested in exploring and reclaiming queer bodies and the culturally ‘unsightly’ elements of them. By employing an often tongue in cheek approach, they explore these concepts through printmaking and fibre or textile-based approaches.
Libbie is excited to share their love of rug hooking with us. Expect to take home a patch-sized hooked creation of your own.
The Oland Room is on the 3rd floor of the Union Club, with no elevator. The washroom is gender neutral.
