The Jacquard Show

Last week, as a part of Fibre Fortnight, we had a show of our Jacquard weavings in conjunction with a Jewellery + Metals show in Gallery 371. The weavings were designed last year by the students of the Intermediate Weaving class when our visiting artist Louise Lemieux-Berube gave a workshop on designing for the Jacquard loom. Our Photoshop designs were then sent to the Centre for Contemporary Textiles in Montreal to be woven.

These weavings represent a first exploration of the possibilities in working with the Jacquard design process.
Here are some photos courtesy of Mackenzie Frere. My work is the diptych of my great grandmother’s face and hands. I went into the Jacquard with some acid dyes to see how colour could work with the black and white image.
