Weaving Memory

Create personal, abstract tapestries on a primitive loom, using a freeform Peruvian scaffold technique inspired by the nomadic herds-people of the Andes. Bring personal items, assorted fibers, and materials to class. Investigate how to process and incorporate your items into the weave. In class, study the work of Sheila Hicks and other artists. Then, share your own stories. Leave with a well-established project about identity, memory, and sense of place that can be finished at home.
