At this full-day professional development workshop, teachers are invited to look through the curatorial lenses of two artists—Françoise Grossen, a fiber artist who rejected the loom in the 1960s to create a novel kind of weaving through knotting rope, and Lauren Kalman, a performance artist and metalsmith whose practice investigates beauty, adornment, body image, value, and consumer culture.
