Alice Hume is a weaver and Textile Artist based at Hotwalls Studios in 2021 will be working on an innovative community Arts Council England Funded project called Interactive Weaves. Alice will be collaborating with 20 different Hotwalls artists to provide free and accessible craft workshops for the public in a series of live events from April through to September. With the events completed there will be an exhibition in Old Portsmouth showcasing the work produced.
The project aims to build community, raise awareness of well-being and sustainability with the public having a go at weaving and other creative workshops. Details of the project can be found here:

…explore topics of plastic consumption, textile waste, and well-being through craft practices with free, accessible workshops…
Interact Weaves will comprise a series of interactive Weave events where Alice Hume will choose a theme where participants can weave with recycled, upcycled, and ethical materials of textile, paper, plastic, and plants. The events will explore topics of plastic consumption, textile waste, and well-being through craft practices with free, accessible workshops run by the artists. The artists will share their skills in ceramics, Turkish ebru, life drawing, painting, hand stitching, gold leaf, and weaving. There will also be live art from a Hotwalls Studios artist who will sit on the parade ground capturing the Weave on an easel. The project will culminate with an exhibition in the Round Tower in September 2021, offering both participants and the general public the chance to see the complete works together.
