More info coming soon!

Tierra Firme invites the community of Oak Cliff to engage with the Land Loom
shelter for the month of May. Join us for a tapestry weaving workshop, artist talk,
and drop in weaving hours. Participants will be invited to weave a woven image
of the urban landscape of Jefferson Blvd using recycled clothing and yarn from
the neigborhood and donated by the community. Using the 8' x 8' frame of the
Land Loom as a viewfinder, participants will weave the civic landscape they see
using basic techniques of twining and plain weave. The collaborative woven
landscape emphasizes exploration of regional identity, time, and place.
