Double Weave Pleats
 

Sara began her work with double weave, pleated fabric in graduate school.  The works are made with two separate layers, woven at the same time but in such a way to form extra folds of fabric on the surface.

Every Mother's Hope and Dreams
Every Mother's Hope and Dreams

Installation set up as part of a group show of various installations. My location was a store room with wood cabinets. Visitors were asked to provide either a hope or dream their mother had for them or one they have for their own children. These were then burned into the giant aprons hung about the room. 2007, West Lafayette, Indiana.
