On exhibit at the Aurora Hills Branch Library, December 3, 2019 - January 31, 2019.
Rita Cohen first learned to weave from an 83-year-old woman in Ithaca, NY. Further studies came from an Aymara indian woman in Bolivia, a Norwegian woman friend/weaver, and workshops through her Guild.
Her preference is to weave “useful” objects; and her favorite part of the weaving process is the satisfaction of seeing what’s happening as a fabric develops - a huge contrast to the electronic world in which we live.
