For the finissage of her exhibition, we have decided to propose an interactive session designed especially for children aged 8 and above, where they will discover the magic of weaving, learn about fabric production for clothing, and explore the nuances between weaving and knitting. Immerse yourself in Katarina’s expertise as she shares both ancestral techniques and contemporary methods in textile art and clothing design. This workshop is an unique opportunity to ignite your child’s creativity and passion for the art of weaving

Tapestries

 

Katarina Spacal was born in 1978 in Slovenia. Having inherited a traditional hand loom from her grandfather, she uses this to weave her creations, but her work defies easy categorisation. While most tapestries made on a loom would generally be flat and often merely decorative, Katarina’s, in contrast, are composed of several woven pieces which are then folded, gathered and sewn together, thereby creating soft, irregular shapes. And while some art critics may have described her work as ‘woven paintings’, in reality they are much more three-dimensional and sculptural than that would suggest, with surfaces rich with gentle folds, swirls and knots.
