Film & Presentation: A Weaverly Path Screening and Nantucket Weavers

May 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for a screening of A Weaverly Path, a stunning portrait of famed weaver Silvia Heyde and a presentation of local Nantucket weavers work. Karin Sheppard of Island Weaves, Hillary Anapol and members of The Looms weaving studio will be present.

Silvia Heyde was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1927 and trained at the School of the Arts in Zurich. Heyden is admired and celebrated by tapestry weavers across the US and around the world. Her pieces hang on the walls of collectors and institutions throughout the world, yet few have had an opportunity to witness the physical intimacy between Silvia and her loom. In English, run time: 63 minutes
