Join us for a hands-on workshop with weaving artist Sheng Lor! Following Sheng's lecture on 4/8, there will be a weaving workshop for SJSU enrolled students at 3PM. Please contact Eleanor Pries at eleanor.pries@sjsu.edu to RSVP.

Sheng Lor is a California-based visual and textile artist born in a refugee camp in Thailand and raised in Stockton, CA. After working in weaving workshops for 6 years, she left her job as principal weaver and moved to San Francisco to begin her textile art practice. Her work — being deeply rooted in her personal history with textiles and experience as a Hmong shamanist — explores both cloth and the refugee memory as sites of knowledge.

Sheng Lor is the founder of Oakland Fiber and has a long-standing Hmong textile art practice.

This workshop is part of the ReWeaving Past and Future series at SJSU, coordinated by Eleanor Pries in the Department of Design. It is also part of the Asian Pacific Islander (API) & Arab American Heritage Month 2024 program. Supported by College of Humanities & Arts' Artistic Excellence Programming Grant.
