Weaving Hand is a Brooklyn based weaving studio and healing arts center. We celebrate a fusion of traditional and contemporary weaving techniques with our studio classes, workshops, commissions, outreach programs and exhibitions all while embracing sustainable and ethical practices.
As a healing arts center, Weaving Hand uses weaving as a creative tool to enhance developmental programs for adults and children with intellectual, emotional and physical disabilities.
We value the evolving teachings and conversations surrounding this rich art form. We continually expand our knowledge by collaborating locally as well as internationally with weavers in Asia, Central and South America, Africa and Europe.
Join, Weave, and Visit Weaving Hand at the Museum of Art & Design this Summer!
From June 5 to August 2, Weaving Hand will join Founder Cynthia Alberto on a several-week long artist residency where we will teach, exhibit artworks, and honor the tradition of weaving at the world-renowned MAD Museum in New York City.
