the weaving place (2008/9)
acrylic looms, cotton/wool/various yarns, Kai Althoff’s interior
the Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada
Upon the invitation of Kai Althoff, who had produced the instructional illustrations for my looms (included in my Master’s Thesis) I set up this ‘weaving place’ at the Vancouver Art Gallery, with six weaving stations and a group of vollunteers that I trained to help museum visitors weave blankets. Over three months, thousands of participants produced 15 blankets together, which were given to a local women’s shelter.
