COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Come make your own party roll with fiber artist, Meg Spitzer. What’s a party roll you ask? It’s a versatile mini tapestry, 100% recycled and repurposed... the ultimate no waste wall hanging.

Met with an abundance of scrap rope, yarn, roving and recycled fibers, Meg started making funky rollable micro weaves that gave new life to what would otherwise be textile waste. A funky texture laden rollable “party" of a tapestry, this fun lil’ bite sized mini fits anywhere and makes a unique gift or perfect addition to a column, entryway, office or gallery wall.

No experience? Perfect. Meg believes that fiber art is for everyone who’s interested, that its accessibility, community and diversity is a large part what makes it beautiful. Super versatile, affordable, and flexible to whatever timeline life allows for at the moment, fiber art is very conducive to life’s unpredictabilities. With it though, comes a responsibility to create sustainably. Meg thinks of fiber waste as valuable, and believes that repurposing scraps can make a substantial impact on the environment.
During this course you will learn how to create your own party roll using material driven design and basic weaving techniques. Feel free to bring your own scraps or use the fibers provided.

Artist Bio:
Meg Spitzer always chose art if given the choice. She received a BFA from the University of Florida in 2005, moved to NYC and quickly learned she’d have to choose work over art if she wanted to stay there. She mixed the two as much as she could but fell out of her personal art practice until after the birth of her second child in 2018. Meg suddenly found herself on the other side of the country, with a newborn, toddler, and a desperate desire to make art again. She spent every Saturday afternoon in a charcoal figure drawing class at the nearest art studio, wondering how she could create at home and wishing her nude models there would sit still.

It wasn’t until Meg was gifted a macrame kit that she realized she had never explored textiles or fiber art. She completed it in a couple hours and immediately ordered more rope. With seemingly endless techniques and possibilities to explore, fiber art immersed her, recentered and grounded her in her past as an artist, while also gracing her with a flexible timeline. The patterns and macrame knots she started with became a meditation practice, a calm space just for her.
Meg is currently a Los Angeles based fiber artist known for her vivid and playful art deco inspired tapestries. Her pieces exist where macrame, weaving and fiber sculpture collide. Not one to shy away from color, she is constantly experimenting with combinations and pushing the boundaries as far as they can go. Meg’s work is largely material based, as even the most intricate pieces were born from a fiber on hand that she wanted to showcase as thoughtfully as possible. Through her work, she explores movement and balance, and the push and pull that fiber is able to demonstrate so well. Each piece of hers is designed and created in her studio at home.
