Program Type


In this workshop, participants will learn how to prepare a loom using simple materials that you can find at home. The teaching artist will guide the group through weaving on a paper plate, with tips for how to transform it into decor or a wearable. We will weave to relax, to express ourselves, to find community, and with the philosophy that there is no such thing as a mistake! Everyone will walk away with at least one finished piece of woven art.

This workshop is produced in partnership with Intertwine Arts.

About the instructor

Working primarily with tactile processes of making, such as dyework, felting, and embroidery, Bennie Krause’s pieces often utilize the meeting of poetics and the human form. Informed by their identity as a disabled and LGBT person, much of their work is tinged with themes of nostalgia or longing, and explores the complicated nature of intimacy, desire, and bodily relationships. Currently, Bennie Krause is working as a teaching artist at Intertwine Arts, a New York Nonprofit founded to teach and share weaving with disabled communities.
