Carbon Footprint is a multi-disciplinary work by artist in residence Seema Goel. The piece uses local wool, spinning and knitting as a metaphor to explore climate change, carbon capture, and micro-economies in Inishowen, County Donegal, Ireland.

Last chance to see...
It's the last week that the studio is open so this is your chance to come down and learn to spin, grab some wool and make some art for the gallery opening on the 12th! We've had such a wonderful response from the public and we'd really like to reflect that with the knitted clothing going on display in the RCC. If you haven't already signed up for knitting there's still plenty of time (since we'll be accepting submissions as long as the show is open). Below, you can see some lovely images full of knitting inspiration :) From the leaves unfolding early to new species of animal our climate is showing change. Feel free to use these images and ideas as a springboard for your own wooly inspiration and make something beautiful (beautiful can still have bumps and holes in it so don't worry beginners!).
I'll be in the studio this week with wool and needles for anyone who'd like to help. If you know any knitters that you think would participate then let them know too :) Spread the word! We need as many wonderful wooly creations as possible to show what great work the Inishowen (and international) folk have been doing.
There's plenty still to come as the project continues in Letterkenny at the Regional Cultural Centre. And of course we'll see you all on the 12th for the opening :)
Feel free to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or enquiries and keep checking the blog for updates.
Thanks for everything! Let's keep it going!
