  • I Love Art: Jacquard Weaving Workshop

    Two weeks ago, I had my last day of 12 years of work for Anthropologie. I packed up my cat themed desk and rolled my yoga ball chair out of there to head into the uncharted waters (well, for me, at least) of grad school.

    That was on a Friday.

    On the following Monday, I got on the bus and headed out to Philadelphia University for a one week jacquard weaving class. I am not a weaver but I do work with textiles and the director of my MFA program thought it would be an amazing experience for me. Holy crap, was it ever. You know how it is, when one week you are mired in corporate politics and second-guessing every smart idea you’ve ever had, then the next week you get to make beautiful fabric designed by you from your own artwork and it all comes spooling out of this magical jacquard loom? I mean, pinch me.

    This road I’m on is not always going to be great and I’m not so naive as to think that grad school won’t have it’s own murky politics to navigate but right now I feel like I am right where I should be and that feeling is great.
