The Windgate Fellowship will allow me the opportunity to further my practice in both the digital and analog textile methods, and to manifest physical as well as conceptual connections between the two. I will have the opportunity to establish a studio in a local makerspace where I will work with computer-assisted Jacquard loom technology as well as refurbish my great-grandmother’s loom in order to continue my exploration of digitally-informed image-making in handwoven double cloth pick up.
The Center for Craft is expanding, adding an additional 7,000 ft² of program space within our historic 1912 building in downtown Asheville! During this time our building will be closed — reopening Fall 2019. Our Grants and Fellowships programs will continue to operate on a normal schedule.Close X
