Upcoming Series: Online Weaving with artist Sharon Kallis
Free skillshare with a practising textile artist!
Throughout the exhibition Plant Kingdom starting May 18, artist Sharon Kallis will be online and at her home loom in Vancouver, British Columbia. Join Sharon virtually from the gallery and weave along on the parallel loom set up in the exhibition.
* Except May 21, June 15, 17, 18 and July 1
This is an opportunity to learn a few basics about the workings of the historical warp-weighted loom and work with a hand-spun nettle and linen warp and weft using fibres gathered from both coasts. The two cloths made from both coasts will be joined and sewn into a future garment for the artist's wardrobe.
Having led textile workshops online throughout the pandemic, this project continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in online skill sharing: bringing old tech to a new life through new tech.
No experience is required but an openness to a handskill adventure is a bonus!
