An online collaborative project led by Joan Baxter, supported by Nearly Wild Weaving
Both a weaving project and a learning experience, Waterline will bring together a small group of tapestry weavers who will each weave their own individual tapestry as one part of a composite tapestry which reflects the theme of the flow of a river.
As a legacy of the project, we will exhibit the tapestry as a single artwork, both online and in a ‘real life’ space. We will also create a publication about the project where we pass on our learning from the design and creation process, its “difficulties and delights”, and show our work in progress.
Starting in early September, running through to January 2022.
Being exhibited Autumn 2022, Farfield Mill, Cumbria
