Interactive Weaves begins!

Interactive Weaves is a series of FREE workshops, taking place twice a month over the summer. The project is led by textiles artist Alice Hume, and each event will be supported by artists from across Portsmouth. Alice will choose each theme where participants can weave with recycled, upcycled and ethical materials of textile, paper, plastic and plants. The events will explore topics of plastic consumption, textile waste and well-being through craft practices with free, accessible workshops run by the artists. They will share their skills in ceramics, Turkish ebru, life drawing, painting, hand stitching, gold leaf and weaving. There will also be live art from a Hotwalls Studios artist who will sit on the parade ground capturing the Weave on an easel. The project will culminate with an exhibition in the Round Tower in September 2021, offering participants the chance to see the complete works together. This event is an opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to get involved in creating a giant woven installation using local waste materials in collaboration with Alice and the Hotwalls Studios artists.
