Join us as Victoria Hoyt and Camille Hawbaker lead a hands-on workshop in which participants will become both the weaver and the loom as they construct a rug together. We will discuss the ways in which textiles can be a gateway for understanding the interwoven nature of the "fabric of society" while we work. Thoughts and personal experiences can be written on fabric strips and woven into the rug. The rug will be joined to other pieces being woven with various groups in Omaha, creating a floor tapestry of intersecting narratives: "The Warp and Weft of Us." No previous weaving knowledge needed–just an open mind and willing hands!
