Maggie Hensel -Brown | "Thread Through"
“Thread Through” is an exhibition and live demonstration, delving into the meditative process of needle lace making.
Needle lace is a painstaking, detailed and fine medium which has historically been used to tell stories. Using a balance of positive and negative space and a variety of patterns, lace can create beautiful, readable imagery.
Historically, lace pieces would tell grand stories, biblical tales or royal lore. Maggie Hensel-Brown uses the medium to tell more intimate, personal stories of contemporary life.
As part of this exhibition, Maggie will be present in the gallery for one week, working on a small piece that tells a contemporary story. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to watch the slow, meditative process of stitching. The progress will also be live-streamed, able to be viewed from anywhere.
Stay in touch for more information about this event.
Coming Soon to Artbau.
