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.
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 event will be accompanied by live music, food, and workshops in the Round Tower. 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. Watch this space for more info on bookings.
Interactive Weaves will take place outdoors, and is accessible for wheelchair users. Pay and display parking is available on site.
