Woolpunk – Artist-Activist-Organizer
Handweavers Guild of Boulder
February 2024 Day & Evening Program
Woolpunk® is an American artist, born in Summit, NJ in 1971. She has both a BA and an MFA from Rutgers University. Woolpunk® employs materials and techniques sourcing women’s work creation, historically; she machine-knits fiber installations, quilts sculptures, and embroiders photographs. Her work consequently champions social change, addressing homelessness and foreclosures, water contamination, and deforestation. Referencing her unique stitching and use of fibers, she trademarked the name Woolpunk®, which she has been using creatively since 2004. The Dairy Arts Center introduced us to WoolPunk!
Day Meeting Presentation: Get a Little Closer to Woolpunk
Say what? Say woolpunk. Trademarked as the artist, Woolpunk will share her work, art shenanigans, and discuss all things fiber related. She will show us her work and describe her inspirations and techniques.
Evening Meeting Presentation: I’d Like to Teach the World to Stitch/Community Outreach and Activism
Woolpunk has long focused on community to highlight the invisible work needed to better our planet. Getting a little closer will deep dive into inspiration and communal outcomes with fiber focused initiatives.
Woolpunk has the hands of a gifted artisan, the soul of a social activist, and the passion of an environmentalist.
