"above all else show the data"
her class, Personal Cartography, will be a lovely and meditative exploration of mark making on cloth.
using your weaving as a poetry of systems
as a map to chart personal data
as a secret message we can lay our experiences into with our hands
what i love most about Robin’s work, is i actually get a message,
an understanding, before i know the system she’s working with
or the language she’s speaking.
and the work itself doesn’t come with an explanation- it exists of it’s own accord.
it a lesson in trust for me.
trusting the steadfast assurity of a message.
oh, i could go on and on.
the final thing i want to share:
the weaving techniques she employs are beautifully simple.
mostly tabbys and twills.
neutral color pallets.
it really is like poetry.
so sparse and deeply considered, that her stories sing of themselves.
(!!!not to say that there won't be plenty of room for
wild and flamboyant exploration
in your own Personal Cartography!!!)
there is still alittle room in the class,
so please consider joining us this spring!!
