Study in Lace
Study in Lace showcases the contemporary work of approximately 30 artisans from the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center.
Most of the artisans at the weaving center are over 55 and many of them have limited vision or no vision. The highly textural nature of lace “structure” has proven to be very appropriate because the weavers are able to feel the tactile patterns of the object they create.
The weaving center had an earlier exhibition of artisans’ weavings at the Hartford History Center last spring, and recently received a grant from the Greater Hartford Arts Council to study and create woven lace textiles.
The artisans’ table linens, scarves, shawls, blankets, and clothing will be on display until August 3. After the exhibition closes, the weavers’ creations will be for sale. If you wish to purchase any of the items, please contact the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center, 860.727.5727 or email@example.com. Ten percent of the proceeds will be donated to Hartford Public Library.
