Patricia’s Wild Weave
Facilitating Artist Patricia Lortie
This project proposed by KO Arts Centre Resident Artist Patricia Lortie seeks to find a way to bring people outdoors and connect with Nature.
Lortie’s artistic practice takes root in her physical and emotional relationship with Nature. Her work is a visual expression of feelings of freedom, communion and humility generated by her encounters with the natural world throughout her life. Her work explores our place within the ecological system as the essence of who we are.
Patricia will demonstrate and guide her students through the grass weaving exercise. The workshop encourages people to walk through the land to find grass and dried twigs to use as materials for their weaving. It is a simple act that directs our attention towards the world that surrounds us creatively and to live in the moment.
