PTC’s Unscripted brings playwrights, audiences, and the imagination together.

 

PTC’s UNSCRIPTED: Mermaid Spring is a project focused on deep co-creation, slow process & social handcraft. The story is inspired by Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida –– a real-life natural attraction where since 1947, women have worked as professional mermaids. The story follows a group of women hustling to hold on to their dream jobs in natural landscapes that are threatened by development.

As part of UNSCRIPTED, the creators behind Mermaid Spring, The Public Swoon, will offer an in-person (socially distanced and PPE available) visible mending workshop led by textile artist Heather Cameron. You are invited to immerse yourself in Mermaid Spring’s themes of slow process, sustainability and care work through a simple sewing workshop sharing techniques used in the creation process.

 

EVENT DETAILS:

You are invited to a Visible Mending Workshop hosted by the Public Swoon, where you will have the opportunity to learn and develop fibre arts techniques as used in the creation process of Mermaid Spring, including crochet and embroidery.

The Visible Mending Workshop will take place at Progress Lab 1422. Please RSVP via this Google Form or email our audience coordinator at community@playwrightstheatre.com.
