Events


Upcoming Events:

Lindsey Wilson’s exhibition worked up/wound up at the Union Gallery is a large-scale textile installation. The artist will create an immersive artwork in which fibres will be spun into yarn and wound into balls over the course of the exhibit. Over the course of the exhibit she will deconstruct the mass, gently drawing out fibre to spin yarn. The space will change over time as the mass of fibre is pulled apart and manipulated.

While in residence during the exhibition, Wilson will facilitate the workshop Pulling Threads: Introduction to Spinning Yarn. The public is invited to join the artist as she manipulates her installation. Participants will learn to spin loose fibres into yarn using a drop spindle and invited to engage with the installation, creating yarn from its masses of fibres, leaving their mark on the installation and taking a piece of it home in the form of their own handmade yarn.

Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary.
Space is limited so please register by September 15, 4pm, to ugallery@queensu.ca
Time: Wednesday, September 19th, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30pm | Materials Fee: None
Location: Union Gallery, 1st Floor Stauffer Library
