For three months this summer, Marianne Fairbanks and a small team of UW Madison students will be converted the Image Lab into Weaving Lab: Plain Cloth Productions.   This lab will served as a site of textile production, exploring the creation of simple cloth on domestic floor looms.  Five looms warped with simple yarns became sites for creating experiments around labor, process, production, meditation, math-based structures and garment production. This reception is a culmination of their work.
