Interactive Weaves: Forest Weave
August 15 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Join studio artist Alice Hume for making a collaborative Forest Weave, as inspired by the nests of the weaver birds. Participants will be provided with natural materials to weave with, learning from Alice as they work.
Interactive Weaves is a free, collaborative art project lead by artist Alice Hume. The project draws together local creatives, and offers the public to get involved free of charge. Individual weaves adopt their own unique theme, including textiles, paper, and plastic. The end of the project will be marked with an exhibition of all works on display in the Round Tower. Originally planned to take place over Summer 2020, the decision to postpone has been made to ensure maximum participation from the public and artists alike.
This project has been made possible thanks to the Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants.
Please note, this date is subject to change as the situation with Covid-19 develops. Updates will be communicated via our blog page and social media.
Alice Hume is a well-established textiles artist, who has exhibited across the UK and developed her skills internationally. She frequently runs sell-out workshops online and from her studio. We are delighted to share this opportunity for the public to work alongside professional artists for free. The Forest Weave offers the chance to learn how to create art using locally sourced plants. Participants are invited to write their own message on a paper label, and can watch artist Katie Munro live-paint the scene.
