Join Hotwalls artist Alice Hume, also known as Vanderhume, as she leads a collaborative weaving project at the studios. This event marks the start of a six-month project, made possible by National Lottery Project grants.
What is Interactive Weaves?
The Interactive Weave project draws together all studio artists, and offers the public a chance to get involved in helping make huge artworks, free of charge. Everyone taking part will work alongside the professional artists of the Hotwalls Studios, in a project that's suitable for all ages and abilities. 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.
Interactive Weaves will take place outdoors, and is accessible for wheelchair users. Pay and display parking is available on site.
Follow @Vanderhume on Instagram, Hume Looms on Facebook, and the Hotwalls Studios for regular updates.
