Weaving Lab: Digital Residency invites artists to translate their work into woven cloth using the specialized technology of the TC-2 Jacquard loom. The residency encourages new discourse, research and invention by extending the interaction with the form of jacquard weaving and the high-tech loom as a prototyping tool.
During the fall of 2017, the Weaving Lab hosted the first Artist in Residence, Nick Herman for a one week intensive.
