COMMUNAL: From Soil to Cloth Workshop with Alice Hume

Aspex Portsmouth, Portsmouth
11 June 2023
11am - 12pm
Free to all

Join local Textile Artist Alice Hume for a paper cordage workshop as part of Aspex Portsmouth's COMMUNAL programme.

You're invited to join local Textile Artist Alice Hume for a paper cordage workshop and contribute to a community paper pot

These cordage workshops are part of Alice’s research for her new project From Soil to Cloth. For this project, Alice will develop urban textile gardens in the city of Portsmouth, with a new collection of work and environmental research.

The Textile industry is the second largest polluter, and yet natural fibres can be grown and are biodegradable. These workshops will be a space for ongoing conversations around textiles and environmental topics and a chance to learn simple craft skills in a relaxed environment.

“The paper cordage workshop in particular was lovely, as much of the time was spent getting to know the other participants while we were quietly creating. The sense of connection that creating something together can allow is so important, and is something that has been largely lost from how we currently live our lives” — Paper Cordage Workshop Attendee.

This workshop is free to attend and suitable for all ages and abilities. All materials, tools, tables and chairs will be provided. There are very limited spaces available and early booking is advised to avoid missing out.

The project is made possible with thanks to Funding from Arts Council England and Support from John Hansard Gallery.
