A series of interactive Weave events in collaboration with the Hotwalls Studios Artists to share skills, raise awareness of sustainable materials and build culture and community in Old Portsmouth.
Alice Hume 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 capture the Weave on an easel. The project will culminate with an exhibition in the Round Tower in September 2021, giving the public an opportunity to see the complete artworks together.
Book your free tickets to become the artist.
All workshops are completely free and suitable for all ages and abilities.
