Join HCCC and former resident artist Molly Koehn for a weaving demonstration in conjunction with In Residence: 11th Edition, an exhibition featuring works by Koehn and other 2017-2018 resident artists. Learn how the artist uses double-weaving techniques, which include the interlacing of multiple pieces of cloth at once, to create woven works on a loom in her experimental process. Loom provided by the Handweaver’s Guild of Houston.

About Molly Koehn
Molly Koehn is an environmental artist from southwest Kansas. She received an MFA with an emphasis in fibers from Arizona State University (2017), and her current bodies of work carry on the delicate, expressive qualities of her background and BFA in drawing from Fort Hays State University (2013). Melding a practice of drawing, weaving, and sculptural installation, Molly’s work examines idealizations of nature. She responds to city landscaping and structure through material and construction, exploring why humans choose to “improve” the aesthetic appearance of the environment by eradicating the natural in favor of the artificial.  During her residency at HCCC, Molly explored Houston’s natural and built environments, creating works to better understand the city. Molly’s work has been published in Surface Design Association Journal; Expose; Shuttle, Spindle, and Dyepot; and many others. She has shown her work extensively in Arizona and Kansas and several other locations nationally.
