MASTER WORKSHOP: LAP-LOOM WEAVING WITH ISABEL WILSON

Discover the basics of lap-loom weaving in this introductory workshop with Houston designer Isabel Wilson.

Learn how to set up your loom using stretcher bars and nails, as well as essential techniques such as plain weave, twill, basket weave, herringbone, and tapestry. Create various textures and patterns using a variety of yarns provided during the class. Experiment with shapes and colors freely as you try out new ways of basic weaving. This class is designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. You will leave knowing how to warp your loom, create basic stitches, and use finishing techniques. Take your loom home to continue your journey into weaving!

The workshop is designed for beginners, so no prior weaving knowledge experience is required.  All necessary materials, equipment, and instruction will be provided.

Pre-registration is required. Registration fee is $100 for HCCC members and $125 for non-members.  Fee includes instructor, materials, and administration fees. Participants will leave with a finished weaving, looms, and weaving tools. The class is for ages 15 and over and requires a minimum of 12 participants to hold.  Register here.

About Isabel Wilson

Ready-to-wear designer Isabel Wilson is from Texas and grew up spending her summers in the bright colors of Cuernavaca, Mexico. Isabel received her BA in textile design at the Rhode Island School of Design and later studied apparel design at the Aalto University of Art & Design in Helsinki, Finland. After graduating in 2008, Isabel moved to NYC, where she worked in the trade and designed textiles for many notable designers, including Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Phillip Lim, Nicole Miller, Tucker, and Bodkin & Degen. Since then, Isabel has collaborated with other artists and design companies including Vonnegut Kraft, Chen & Kai, Biscuit Home, Like Minded Objects, painter Richmond Burton, Wallpaper Projects, Rform Studio, Mariem Co., and Crush Studio. Isabel has also created custom performance outfits for musicians including Kesha, Lady Gaga, Kelsey Lu, and Faren & the French Fries.

Isabel designs with the intention to empower women by making them feel amazing, challenge traditional notions of what it means to be sexy, and celebrate diversity. Now in her eighth season, Isabel continues to shape flattering silhouettes, cut from her custom textiles.

Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!
