Authors: Deschênes, Janie

Abstract: This thesis aims to show the importance of textile hobbies for the identity of Quebecois women, in the way they socialize, in the expression of their feelings for those they love, in the development of their creativity and in the balance of their mental and physical health. It also focuses on the history of textile arts in the province of Quebec, what techniques are still transmitted today and how this transmission of knowledge takes place. It deals with personal development, technical emulation, passion, and the relationship to death. Finally, it examines the relationship to the handmade object, its ethical, political or ecological character. The analysis draws on ethnographic interviews with 41 women practicing textile arts as a hobby and an artisan of fibers from different parts of the province of Québec and from the Ottawa region in the province of Ontario.
