Program Description

Learn about the process of designing a handwoven textile with artist-in-residence Luam Melake. In this iteration of MADmakes, Melake will show examples of historical precedents and lead a discussion on the significance of color, composition, and material selection, while participants gain hands-on experience drafting designs for textiles on graph paper. Visitors will have the opportunity to create samples of their designs by weaving paper strips on small finger looms to better understand the process from design to realization. 

Led by MAD’s artists-in-residence, MADmakes is a drop-in, hands-on series where visitors can test their skills at art making and creative production. MADmakes provides an opportunity for visitors to better understand and appreciate the workmanship that goes into contemporary studio practice today. Visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels are invited to create something new every month.
