Alicia is a Texas born, Brooklyn-based artist, she received her BFA at Pratt Institute in 2012. Alicia was first introduced to weaving in 2011, during her internship at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Drawing on the ancient system of weaving in its most basic form, Alicia is interested in manipulating the variables to determine what can be produced when the warp and weft are challenged. Using vibrant colors, woven appendages, and negative space, each piece achieves a playful quality within the historical context of weaving and tapestry.
In her workshop, you'll learn how to weave on a frame loom! In this three hour course you will be introduced to the fundamental techniques of tapestry, including plain weave, weaving shapes, and textural knots. We will also spend time experimenting with color, materials, and woven structure. While you may not be able to complete your project in class, you can take home your loom, materials, and new ideas!
Alicia's workshop is on Thursday, October 13th from 7-10p. Sign up here!
