Weaving is one of simplest and most enjoyable ways to begin exploring fiber art. A few simple techniques is all that is needed to make beautiful one-of-kind pieces. In this class we’ll be taking a mixed media approach, experimenting with both traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques. Each student will build his or her own frame loom, and a variety of materials will be available to weave with each class. Students are also encouraged to bring in any other materials they’d like to experiment with. At the end of the class we’ll remove the completed weavings from the looms and discuss finishing and display techniques. All materials are included in the cost of this class.

Devyn Leonor Briggs studied fine art at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), a nationally ranked art college in Baltimore, MD. There she studied drawing, painting, sculpture, fiber arts, and ceramics. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Ceramics in May 2013 and went on to study business at MICA in the Business of Art and Design Master’s program. Devyn’s work has always been inspired by her mixed Colombian, Jamaican, and African American heritage. Through painting, ceramics, and textiles, Devyn expresses her passion for the colors, patterns, and textures of her culture and the unique fusion of traditional and contemporary art forms that result from her upbringing and her training. Devyn was raised in Bethlehem, PA, and is a graduate of Freedom High School.
