As part of a month-long exhibit, Leonore Alaniz transforms the Barnes Gallery into a public, hands-on maker-space, where metaphors come alive: There is opportunity to card and spin local wool, make rope, weave on small and large looms, repurpose textiles into a rug. Individuals wishing to weave personal threads into the Common Cloth Tapestry may do so. Participant may take home small projects they completed and wish to own, for a small material fee. Through collaborative weaving however, “Common Cloth” emerges. It is owned by all, and intended to delight anyone. Also enjoy the textiles and fabrics designed and cultivated by this local fiber artist.
