Through the generosity of my friend, Cynthia Alberto, I am spending some time this fall as a Resident Teaching Artist at Weaving Hand in Brooklyn. Pictured above is the process of me putting a warp on the loom. The maroon “threads” are strips of netted fabric. I cut the fabric and delicately laced it through the heddles (aka needles) on the loom.
The muslin with embroidered text will also be cut into strips and will be the weft, or the threads that intersperse the warp.
The structure itself will be a loosely-woven lace.
"We live in uncertain times and hang on by a thread. Here, I weave my own threads into something tangible yet loosely structured."
