A Live Presentation with Tapestry Weaver and Artist, Michael F. Rohde

For over forty years, Michael F. Rohde has been an artist in the medium of handwoven textiles, initially for the floor, but more recently contemporary tapestries for the wall. Rohde takes members on a fascinating journey of his tapestry weaving practice, emphasizing recent textiles that portray language and pixelated faces. He also gives a sneak peek at work that he has been creating under quarantine. This involved dyeing and weaving a suite of tapestries with his own yarn, inspired by colors from his many trips to Oaxaca, Mexico. This artist talk and presentation provides an inside look into Rohde’s creative process and special weaving techniques!
