CALL FOR WEAVERS!

Seeking experienced* hand weavers for an online weaving project called "Google Weaving Stop-time"

*enough to make a hand woven textile from beginning to end, and understanding of how a Ghiordes knot/Turkish knot/Rya knot is made. You will be invited to weave an interpretation of a downloaded image, so some experiences in traditional tapestry might be useful as well.

I invite you to take part, participate and share your time with me and a group of hand-weavers, our final outcome will be exhibited at the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial September 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey (for more info on the biennial see www.aschoolofschools.iksv.org)
All our tapestries will be exhibited together and your name will be recognized with it. After Istanbul, the exhibition will travel further to Belgium (spring 2019) before being returned to you.

Who am I?
My name is Emelie Röndahl, I am a weaving artist, living and working in Sweden. I started to weave in 2006 and have been doing so fulltime since graduating from art school in 2012, primarily in the pile-weaving technique called "rya".
I have been invited by the 4th Istanbul design Biennial to create my project "Google Weaving Stop-time".

More info on me and my work can be found on www.emelierondahl.se and @emeliepamelarondahl on Instagram
