Opening reception: Thursday September 18 2014 6-9pm.
We are looking for people who would like to be weaving assistants and help newcomers weave a shape to contribute to the project or demonstrate how tapestry weaving is done. If you are interested please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A slide/video presentation is included as part of the exhibition and perhaps you will be featured in it if you have participated. All names of contributors will also be included on one of the walls of the gallery. The curator of Craft Ontario, Janna Hiemstra's suggested that the project be ongoing and so we will continue to accept shapes. Let me know if you or anyone else is interested in contributing. This means of course, that the installation will be constantly expanding! We are also looking for other venues to exhibit this installation. Suggestions and invitations can be directed to email@example.com. This installation was generously funded by :
