Living Tapestry Workshops

Living Tapestry Workshops

This unique workshop enables participants to learn the basics of germination while experiencing the magic of living, breathing embroidered tapestries, with roots that bind to fabric as growing thread. This is a great way to experiment on a small-scale tapestry while learning concrete growing tricks that may be translated into one’s own creative practice. Materials include burlap, seeds and mineral supplements.
