July 12 to 25 I was in Quetico Park, near Atikokan, Ontario.
In a beautiful pristine wilderness, I had part of a studio, and my own tent, and two weeks to weave.
Some of the sights:
While there I was to weave a ‘Quetico Sash’. I had already worked out the color and patterns ahead of time.
I used the table in the studio to measure out the sash.
Weaving was a very pleasant proposition, a lovely view, nice light, and away from the mosquitoes.
I gave two workshops on finger weaving while in Quetico. Campers, Quetico staff, as well as individuals on the Paul Kane dig.
I eventually finished the Quetico Sash, and turned it over to the park.
I’ll be Artist in Residence in Quetico Park July 12-25. Working with park staff I’ve agreed to weave a ‘Quetico Sash’ while there.
Based on the Quetico logo, there’s a pattern that’s been rattling around in my head ever since visiting this beautiful wilderness last Summer.
For now I’m playing with colors. I need to decide which colors before Monday.
