Patricia’s Wild Weave
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 during a live webinar. The workshop encourages people to walk through the land to find grass and dried twigs to overcome isolation and enclosure. It is a simple act that directs our attention towards the world that surrounds us creatively and to live in the moment. KOAC’s Weavers of Grass will be invited to share their works with the community through social media and in a virtual KO Arts Centre show.
