Tapestry weaving has a long tradition as a narrative art form. While that aspect initially drew textile artist Alex Friedman to the medium, it was the weaving process that really excited her. She realized the simplicity of the grid and the basic over / under interlock of the warp and weft would allow her to explore many ways of creating more dimensions within the basic parameters of traditional tapestry. She will talk about the circuitous route in her evolution as a contemporary tapestry weaver.
