Patricia’s Wild Weave
August 14 & 28, September 18 & Oct 2 @ 1 – 3 pm
Artist Patricia Lortie’s Wild Weave 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 you to walk through the land, finding dried grass and twigs, to overcome isolation and enclosure. It is a simple act that directs our attention towards the world that surrounds us and encourages us to live in the moment.
Materials are all provided onsite. If the weather is agreeable, please come dressed comfortably and be prepared to spend the workshop outdoors; water, sunscreen and bug spray are recommended. In the case of inclement weather, the workshop will move inside one of the studios at KOAC.
This workshop is suitable for all ages, however adult supervision/help is recommended for children under 8 years of age.
