Interactive Weaves: Textile Weave
April 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Join Hotwalls artist Alice Hume, known as Vanderhume, as she leads a collaborative weaving project at the studios! This marks the start of a six month project, made possible by National Lottery Project Grants.
Each collaboration will take place with the Hotwalls Open Studios events on the third Sunday of each month. The project draws together all studio artists, and offers the public to get involved free of charge. Individual weaves will 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.
The first in the series will focus on reused textiles. Participants will be encouraged to bring old clothing or fabrics from home to contribute to the weave. The weaving projects offer the public the chance to work alongside the professional artists of the Hotwalls Studios, and is suitable for all ages and abilities. This weave will be supported by textiles artist Kim Edith.
Interactive Weaves will take place outdoors, and is accessible for wheelchair users. Pay and display parking is available on site.
