Studio Class: Exploring Weaving

March 11, 2023
10:30am - 1:30pm

Instructor: Denise Treizman
Teen and Adult
Price: $40 for members; $50 for not-yet members

Join artist Denise Treizman for an experimental and playful art making workshop. Call it weaving, call it painting, call it collage? It doesn’t really matter when it is all about texture and fun!

Participants will start by making individual cardboard looms, which may also be painted and/or collaged before weaving. Fibers and mostly alternative and re-purposed materials will be used to weave using this cardboard support, resulting in a unique visual and textural artwork. Materials will be provided and they will range from duct tape, ropes, bubble wrap, pipe cleaners, painted paper and plastic bags, to anything you can think of. Participants are highly encouraged to dig into their kids’ drawers (and their own!) to bring in more materials if they wish. This free-form workshop will be a “no-rules just play” experience. It will expand your creativity and the way you think of everyday materials and, why not, art! Additionally, a big pre-dressed floor loom will sit in the room, allowing participants to have hands-on experience using a floor loom. Collectively we will weave an artwork that will remain on display in the studio.

Denise Treizman is an artist born and raised in Chile. She creates sculptures and installation-based works combining found objects and ready-made materials with brightly colored, textural, and sometimes luminescent weavings. Treizman earned an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. Having lived in many densely populated cities over the years—Santiago, London, San Francisco, New York City, Haifa, and Miami—her practice has stemmed from and benefited from throwaway culture.
