On Monday, January 30th at 12 pm
Creative Spark Print Studio and Art as Exchange invite you to a free an outdoor event for Brigid's Day. The team of artists have been working on the project since mid-November and will be showcasing their work on this special day. The event will feature a weave workshop , performance and display of the Brigid's Cloak, a temporary outdoor exhibition, and a zine about Brigid.
The day will feature a "Weaving Frame" onsite, where members of the public can add foliage, twigs, and other materials throughout the day, allowing them to actively participate in the creation of the final piece and become a part of the project. The collaborative natural of weave reminds us of the message of Brigid to work together for the care and protection of the environment.
The Fabric Cloak, co-produced by the team, takes inspiration from Brigid and all aspects of her life. The various sections of the cloak have been worked on by AAEX artists and young people from Gaelscoil Dun Dealgan led by Susan Farrelly and will continue to grow as they add creative contributions from other artists and the surrounding community.
The guidebook, titled "A Guidebook to your Brigid Feast Day," is a collaborative magazine filled with content about Brigid, including drawings, illustrations, recipes, how-to tutorials, stories, and folklore.
This project has been funded by Create Louth and Creative Spark.
