Fleisher From a Distance: Weaving

Join teaching artist Stefanie Fuoco to learn more about weaving from home. Stefanie will demonstrate how to build a loom with everyday household objects. We’ll also discuss how to weave on the loom and make a weaving using the core technique of plain weave and how to finish the weaving with fringe. At the end of the webinar, students will have a tutorial on how to remove the weaving from the loom so that the loom can be used to create another beautiful piece and the weaving can be hung as a piece of art on any wall.

Stefanie Fuoco is a weaver and fiber artist. She was raised in rural Vermont and moved to Philadelphia to continue her education in the arts. Stefanie shows her work in various galleries and boutiques, as well as working on private commissions. She also shares her craft by teaching locally at various locations. Her weavings represent vignettes, sketches of an emotion caught in time. Her work is forever evolving, she creates daily, exploring different techniques and mediums while keeping an organic and natural approach to her work. Her weavings are unique and always adds diversity and great energy to any space.
