Adrian Schoone

Abstract


The visual poem, “The loom,” is an ekphrastic response to Ilona Pappne Demecs’s article “Woven Narratives: A Craft Encounter with Tapestry Weaving in a Residential Ages Care Facility.” By drawing words and phrases from Demec’s article, the author wove a word tapestry, in a technique learnt from a child in a South Auckland primary school in New Zealand.
