Discover the joy of weaving and the sensory medium of fiber art with a class perfect for beginners. The practice of weaving invites the artist to a beautiful meditative space to heal, process, and guide attention inward. Join instructor Laura Wasserman to learn foundational skills for weaving on a small frame loom. Students will learn to warp a loom, practice plain tabby weave, and complete their first piece. Discussion covers basic weaving terms, local fiber resources, and opportunities for repurposing found or upcycled materials in your work. A portable frame loom and all materials are included in the class fee.
Artist bio: Laura Wasserman is a mixed media weaver based in Alameda, CA, whose bold, abstract weavings and notably feminist compositions showcase the power of fiber to both comfort and evoke. Her pieces are maximalist in nature, experiment with found and recycled materials, and incorporate her own brand of small-batch handspun yarns. Personal narratives highlighted in her work include themes of loss and motherhood. With formal degrees in creative writing, her weavings are self-taught explorations. Her work has been shown at ACCI Gallery and Mann Gallery at Cornell University.
