Professional workshop, 23 May, 09:30 - 14:30
Weaving and sound have a shared vocabulary: we speak of colour, texture, pattern, shape, form, rhythm... The starting point for this workshop by Alastair Duncan is a ‘sound walk’ around the locality, listening to and recording the ambient sound. Back in the gallery, we will use the recordings as a starting point for the selection of materials and the design of a simple woven tapestry.
There is no requirement to complete a piece of weaving during this workshop, but there will be a charge if participants want to keep equipment and materials; alternatively they can bring their own warped looms.
