We are thrilled to have Harriet Goodall join us in June for a two-day workshop before she heads up to Squam Lake to teach at the most heavenly art escape, Squam. Harriet is an Australian fibre artist who's creations will take your breath away. Her basketry will turn whatever preconceived notions you have about basket weaving on end. From baskets to furniture to gorgeous baskets of light, Harriet's pieces are a celebration of nature and the artist.<PREVIEWEND>
Day One of Harriet's workshop will focus on random weaving with a pop of fluoro. In Day Two you'll learn traditional open weaving techniques with the opportunity to incorporate recycled materials. In both classes students are encouraged to experiment and explore their own notions of art, craft and object. You'll make two vessels over the weekend and have the opportunity to spend time with an inspiring and talented artist.
We'll be transforming the studio space to accommodate tubs for soaking cane, buckets of fluoro and racks to hang the weavings from. There will be music and cake. And plenty of time to dream as you weave. All you are required to bring is your paint clothes or apron and perhaps some recycled fiber/paper/etc to weave into your vessels.
We wouldn't be able to host Harriet without the generosity of Elizabeth Duvivier and Squam. Thanks to Elizabeth's outreach we were introduced to Harriet and we hope this is one of many future collaborations.
