 Machine Project Artist In Residence logoNeedlepoint Therapy
Billy Wilder Theater Green Room
Thursday, 2-3:30pm

Led by West Los Angeles based psycho-analyst and needlepointing enthusiast, Dr. Ellen Medway, a small group of people will convene privately for 90 minute sessions of therapy over an eight-week period.

While the group pursues self-exploration, discovery and psychological enrichment, they will also be engaging with craft and art history as they needlepoint images based on paintings from the museum's permanent collection. Dr. Medway chose a selection of works that she has deemed conducive, relevant and pertinent to the therapeutic process. Images of these paintings have been made into needlepoint patterns and each participant will work on this pattern from the collection throughout the sessions. These sessions are now full.
