FREE Fiber Workshop – Crochet & Tapestry Weaving with Gabrielle Duggan

December 17, 2015 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Gabrielle Duggan is the recipient of a funded Knight Emerging Artist Residency at Ponyride. Come to Ponyride for her free workshop on crochet and tapestry weaving this Thursday at 6:00 PM.

Open to the public, materials supplied, no previous experience required. All are encouged to attend.

This residency was made possible by The Applebaum Family Compass Fund, The Knight Foundation, The Empowerment Plan, and Detroit Denim.

Building on and expanding techniques rooted in traditional fiber work, Gabrielle Duggan creates elaborate installations of disparate materials; glass, tar, rocks, wire, yarn, wood, paint, found objects, and other textiles. She is drawn to materials of the natural and industrial worlds, and values a connection to animals through researching fiber production (sheering, spinning, and hand constructing cloth). Her installations and performance pieces challenge traditional gender expressions, labor value systems, and address larger social issues through the use of tension, repetition, and by twisting the multiple meanings imbued in the material itself.

Gabrielle Duggan was born in Buffalo, New York and earned her Master of Art and Design in Fibers and Surface Design from North Carolina State University.
