THE MATERIALITY OF ROPE
Workshop led by Amanda Thackray
In a hands-on workshop making rope bracelets out of paper and/or fabric scraps, participants will learn how to counter-twist fibers together into rope and create beautiful adjustable bracelets.
Thackray's installation The Line is a functional rope swing made from paper and can be located on the Main Deck.
