Program and Demo: 60-90 Minute Remote includes a talk about my artwork/process up to the current piece(s) I am working on. I leave time for a 20-minute demo to show work on my current weaving in studio. This is usually a Double-Weave Pick-Up or a Theo Moorman Inlay weaving technique. Attendees can ask more detailed weaving questions that I can answer while I weave.
