Interwoven Histories: Weaving Students at Black Mountain College

This collection highlights students that participated in weaving and textile design at the college, and shares a few faculty and apprentice teachers. We hope that this resource compliments the new exhibitions and books being released in 2023, and shares more information about lesser-known individuals at BMC.
