Wistful weaving from wrapping
This piece came about when I was asked to run an online art workshop for the Lithuanian community (yep, COVID times) and had to come up with something that was both easy to explain, and promised easily achievable results for the participants from their homes. Frottage to the rescue! I had originally scrounged the plastic packaging thinking I would use it in creating collagraph negatives, but turns out it's terrific for frottage as well. The weaving design was chosen for the ease with which it could be mapped out and also for its Lithuanian reference. With borders closed around the globe and no idea when we would be able to travel again, this was my way of 'returning' to the motherland.
