Hooking Up with Heather Goodchild is a one-day event designed to inspire growth and exchange. Spend the day hooking, making connections and enjoying an artist-led talk. Goodchild will offer insight into her own creative process; how historic rugs inform her work and how she views rug hooking within a contemporary art practice.
Set amongst the rolling hills of the Caledon countryside in a tented outdoor studio, participants will be delighted by a complimentary continental breakfast and the chance to browse and shop exclusive wool fabrics, yarns, and fibres in the Martina Lesar Hooked Rug Studio. Please remember to bring a boxed lunch and your current project-in-progress to work on for the day.
@heather__goodchild (Toronto) has exhibited her multidisciplinary work since 2002 across Canada and abroad. She received the Chalmers Arts Fellowship in 2019 and was recently at the Varda Artists Residence program (California) and the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts (Greece). Goodchild exhibited at the Textile Museum of Canada in 2013, was the Artist in Residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2012, and in 2020 showed at The Rooms, St John’s NL. She is currently exhibiting as part of A Temple most August at Clint Roenisch Gallery (Toronto) and this winter will be part of Hooked by Design, a survey of contemporary hooked rugs at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts.
