Weaving Lab is made possible with generous support from: 

Marianne Fairbanks and a small team of students have converted the Image Lab in the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery into the Weaving Lab: Plain Cloth Productions 2017.   This lab serves as a site of textile production, exploring the creation of simple cloth on domestic floor looms.  Five looms have become sites for creating experiments around labor, process, production, meditation, math-based structures, and more.
