Backstrap Loom Weaving Workshop

Fiber and performance artist Steven Frost explores the way history and time are embedded in materials by combining yarn and other traditional weaving materials with ribbons, plastic beads, sequins, shredded t-shirts, and other salvaged goods in his Woven Compositions. Join Frost for this one-time workshop to learn how to warp and weave with a backstrap loom, a tool he uses often in his own work.

Backstrap looms are found all over the world from Japan to Central America and have been popular for centuries due to their simplicity of design and portability. In addition to teaching technique, Frost will discuss the history of the loom. During this workshop, participants will create their own woven work and take home a custom loom for future projects.

Frost’s workshop takes place in conjunction with AAC’s current exhibition Over, Under, Forward, Back.
