Guild Meeting May 10, 2017
Rebecca grew up in New Mexico surrounded by family members who shared their love of weaving, drawing, art and adventure. Today her work is drawn from the colors, open skies and symbols of the Southwest. She was fascinated with doubleweave, but discovered that tapestry would allow her better expression. She studied in in New Mexico and apprenticed with James Koehler.
Guild Workshop May 10 -12, 2017
The southwestern United States is a place rich in culture, landscape, and weaving traditions. In this class we will explore questions about the influence of traditional southwestern weaving on contemporary tapestry practice and how symbols are important in Native and Hispanic weaving practice over the last centuries and today. Most importantly, we will consider how we can use symbols from our own experience to inform our design process and investigate the essential pieces of ourselves that lead us to art making. We will use symbol as a design tool, create several tapestry cartoons, and weave either a small tapestry or a study for a larger work.
Evening Meeting May 15, 2017
In preparation for the summer months, members will be looking at projects that move wherever you go.
NOTE: Meeting is held 7-9 pm at the Weaving & Fiber Arts Center.
