Spin a Yarn - March 2017

A new experience for me this month - I wrote a magazine article! Weaving on a Black Mountain Loom will be in the September/October 2017 issue of Handwoven Magazine. I was asked to write about my experience with Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933-1957, a traveling exhibit that included a loom from the Anni Albers weaving workshop at Black Mountain College. The loom was shipped in pieces from the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston to the UCLA Hammer Museum and I was charged with putting it back together, designing an appropriate textile for the loom and doing educational weaving demonstrations in the gallery. It was fun to “spin a yarn” about this outstanding exhibit.
