EL ARRECIADO, Simposio Internacional de la #Lana, Castilla la Mancha.
This working symposium offers a “thinking outside the box” opportunity. To get away from one’s usual creative thought patterns, routine and place. To be free to investigate with a new medium, use different building techniques, to document, think, write, sketch etc.
It is geared towards a shared creative time with other art professionals, where exchanging thought about art-work is possible. It provides 6 days solely for art practice, in close contact with a beautiful natural environment.
Witness the shearing process and then use the wool for your creative practice. Wool is
available for 3 days to make ephemeral works, which will be dismantled after the
symposium, when the wool will be taken for spinning. Artists have an opportunity to use it in this “in-between” phase – the no-man’s land of sheep’s wool – while it sits and waits its final outcome!!
