Third Thursday Workshop: Weave Found Objects with Dianne Smith

 Inspired by the long line of basket weavers in her family that kept that African tradition alive in Belize artist-in-residence Dianne Smith leads our free workshop on weaving with found materials.

We’ll also take a tour of Dianne’s solo exhibition Twisted Woven Tied on view now in the MFTA Gallery. Twisted Woven Tied features 51 works created from found objects, textiles and personal items. Addressing issues of sustainability, Smith’s use of textile creates a dialogue around resourcefulness and alternative methods while also encouraging viewers to explore topics of identity found in the works.
