Eliza Rehard is a fiber artist, working in hand embroidery, sewing, quilting, and weaving. She is a recent transplant to Louisville, where she has found home in many ways, especially among the local communities of creatives and makers. She has been working with textiles from an early age with support and guidance from her grandmother, mother, and the brilliant women they worked with. She began with basic sewing, and eventually learned quilting and tailoring techniques. In college, Eliza discovered a passion for hand embroidery, which she pursues in her free time. She has taken Intensive Weaving at Earlham College and Introduction to Painting; Silk Screen Techniques at Cincinnati Art Academy. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Earlham College in English and Creative Writing.  Weaving has taken hold of her focus, and she looks forward to refining her craft. 

The tradition of a teaching/learning community in fiber arts is integral both to my personal understanding of the craft and its history, and to the organizational principles of the Little Loomhouse. As a Resident, I intend to explore the historical resources available through the archives and community. I would also expand specifically upon my knowledge of and experience with hand-dyeing, traditional American weaving methods, and refinement of technique.” -Eliza Rehard

 

We’d like to thank Fund for the Arts, J. Wakeley Purple, Mary Hoog, Scott Grant, and our members for continued support in our weaving and educational programs.
