This is what I have been up to recently
Textile artist Travis Meinolf performed a public weaving for six days in our Ace London lobby. Local artist Max Lamb — who also helped us design our lobby bar — joined him to build a custom loom on which he wove skeins of flecked Irish Donegal wool into a 30-foot long blanket. The performance connected those who would ultimately use the blanket directly to Meinolf’s production process. He travels all over the world to weave in this way — using his performances to engage with his audience and share ideas. And sometimes, like here, to share space under a warm wool blanket.
"Since the pleasure is in the making, sharing is easy and adds a sense of communal well-being.” — Travis Meinolf
Action Weaver Holistic Weaving Course in Berkeley California, are you interested?
Since arriving back in America I have had much to do, but am planning a weaving course at my friends’ Berkeley art space the Subterranean Arthouse in a few months! Would you be interested in having a folding loom as pictured here, and spending a few hours twice a week learning my holistic generous weaving technique and philosophy? The first class will accept six participants… Contact me to start our weaving journey! Tmeinolf@yahoo.com
UPDATE: FIRST PLANNING SESSION NEXT TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH AT THE ARTHOUSE!!!
Come out at 6pm and we can see how it will go! 2179 Bancroft Way in Berkeley, rsvp tmeinolf@yahoo (or send more spam I love it!)
