Os Lugares significam  mais do que uma posição, ponto ou área específica no espaço; uma localização. Um lugar é cheio de cultura, energia e lembranças. Como um lugar afeta a visão do artista. Como exemplo, a ambição de Monet de documentar o interior da França o levou a adotar um método de pintar a mesma cena várias vezes, a fim de capturar a mudança de luz e a passagem das estações. Este workshop permite que os participantes usem fotos impressas tiradas por eles mesmos em tapeçaria para registrar as memórias em uma obra de arte tecida. Fornecerei os materiais e ferramentas para os participantes criarem sua própria arte de tapeçaria. Lugares são o tema das obras de arte, o participante pode escolher entre várias fotos de lugares famosos. As fotos podem expressar fuga de terras, flores, oceanos e edifícios que refletem os lugares. Os participantes poderão tecer com fios, tiras de tecidos e fibras naturais como Lenin - seda e lã.

 

Places means more than a particular position, point, or area in space; a location. A place is full of culture, energy and memories. How can a place effects the artist’s view. As an Example, Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. This workshop allow participants to use printed pictures taken by themselves into tapestry to record the memories in a woven art work. I will provide the materials and tools for participants to create their own tapestry art. Places are the theme of the art works, participant can chose from range of famous places' photos. Photos could express land escape, flowers, oceans and buildings that reflect the places. Participants will be able to weave using yarns, strips of fabrics, and natural fibers such as Lenin – wool- silk.
