After she retired, Kiki Dembrow discovered tapestry and the lively community of weavers at the Damascus Fiber Arts School.
Weaving is the means by which Kiki explores the interplay of ideas, images, and colors that resonate for her. The constraints of warp and weft present challenges, choices to balance. She asks herself, “How will I translate these ideas, images and colors into the language of weaving?” The process of finding resolution, of making the intangible tangible, is stimulating as well as frustrating, and pushes her to learn and grow.
Kiki’s practice includes a continuing study of the technique known as raised edge pick and pick, which creates a raised outline where the colors change. Sign up for her 2017 workshop.
This gallery shows a few of her tapestries.
