Weave a Market Tote!


Join us for a 3.5-hour workshop where you’ll craft your own woven shoulder bag/market tote. Designed for beginners and enthusiasts alike, this hands-on session offers an opportunity to learn essential techniques in 3-dimensional weaving to create a form. Under the guidance of textile artist and educator Jessie Mordine Young, you’ll master the fundamentals of weaving while bringing your vision to life, resulting in a personalized art object that reflects your personal style.

About the instructor: 

Jessie Mordine Young is a Brooklyn-based artist who researches, writes about, curates, makes and teaches textile art. In one of her more recent bodies of work, she embarked on a project of creating daily artworks, which she calls “woven drawings” or “thread sketches.” These pieces directly connect to her experiences in nature, where color and texture become tangible references to memory. Jessie is a recent graduate (2021) from the Masters Program in the History of Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. She received her BFA in 2015 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) with a dual degree in Art History and Studio Art in Fiber and Material Studies. She is a part-time lecturer/faculty in the MFA Textiles Program and the Interior Design program at Parsons School of Design. You can view her woven work here.
