About this event
Explore the indescribable beauty of Sardinian handwoven textiles, see the loving and painstaking artistry of their creation, meet the tessitrici artigianali — the unique women who maintain the tradition of a nearly-lost art— and glimpse just a bit of Sardinia’s majesty in this event with Kelly Manjula Koza, the founder of Sardinian Arts.
Woven one at a time on looms powered entirely by hand and foot, Sardinian handwoven textiles are technically precise, astonishingly beautiful, and possess an unquantifiable essence that serves as a portal to something we seek yet may not be able to describe.
Kelly will discuss the importance of the handmade, the relevance these women, their weavings, and their traditions have in our modern world, and the anima (spirit) of Sardinian handwoven textiles. Kelly will share portions of her film as well as photos, stories of the weavers, knowledge of the island, and glimpses of her personal textile collection.
Before the event, you are invited to watch Kelly’s documentary I Want to Weave the Weft of Time (free, 29 minutes) as an introduction to what we’ll discuss at the event. See the trailer here and watch the entire film at WeaveWeftofTime.com. Find additional information on SardinianArts.com.
The event will be held on Zoom; details will be provided upon registration.
