Social Fabric Weaving Workshop

02 Feb 13

Berlin-based artist Travis Meinolf hosts a weaving workshop at CCA.

For his first project in Northern Ireland, Meinolf demonstrates a simple weaving technique and invites anyone over the age of four to join in making either scarves or pieces of a single blanket we all contribute to the current exhibition. As a way to connect the woven materials to the flavor of the area’s textiles, we ask that participants bring materials with them materials from visitors; by using wools from local residents and crafts-peoples’ stock and hearing their uses and the tales surrounding them, Travis hopes to understand the connections people have with cloth craft. In the end we will have either one complete blanket made by participants from their own resources, or many distributed pieces connected by their space and time of production.
