Come join Leanne Thompson as she creates her artwork titled ‘Unravelled and Interwoven’ and learn some weaving techniques with her, as well as discover more about water courses.
Leanne’s work is an interactive installation which will ‘unravel’ in form, content and purpose during the exhibition. The work is a symbolic eroded watercourse which will respond to the care given to it through public ‘interwoven’ workshop events. The initial sculpture acts as an armature that opens to accept new elements woven from harvested floodplain species and the form will grow to resemble healthy floodplain. New small woven elements created within workshops will be added in resembling understory and soil, altering the symbolic form from smooth gutter to entangled growth.
A sound installation will also be with this work, so be prepared to be recorded as you work!
