Margot Becker is a fiber artist, farmhand, and educator living and working in Hudson NY. She received her B.A. in Studio Arts from Bard College in 2009 after which she attended Penland School of Craft to study weaving. Margot Handwoven is the product of a 5 year independent study of the process of creating textiles from start to finish, born from a deep desire to understand the origins and lives affected by the production of the cloths that surround us in our day to day lives. The majority of the animal fibers used in her work are sourced from Buckwheat Bridge Angoras, where she personally works with the animals and in the farm’s solar and wind-powered fiber mill and makes her own yarn.
All of her pieces are woven by her own hand in Hudson and Catskill NY. Join us for a pop up shop in the Library.
