Artist Talk & Workshop w/ Ani Hoover
Please join us in the lobby gallery of 500 Seneca for an artist talk and rug-making workshop with Ani Hoover. Ani will present her work and inspiration for the works on view at the Cass Project in an informal roundtable discussion as participates produce a rag rug. This making session is based on a knotting technique variation that is sometimes called “Amish Knotting”, “Scandinavian Knotting” or “Toothbrush knotting”. This simple rag rug making technique requires no tools or skills and can be done anywhere. Supplies will be provided, but please bring any non-stretchy fabrics that you wish to use or share with others. Having a diverse mix of fabrics will lead to more colorful projects. For more information about the event, please visit the Facebook event page.
