S1E11 : Ask the Difficult Questions of Your Work with Kat Howard

This week we talk with Kat Howard from New York. Kat Howard is a fiber artist who blends the literary nuances of poetry into the textural work of weaving. Her MFA background in Book Art and Creative Writing, has given her a clear voice and understanding in her practice as a sculptural tapestry weaver. She uses a variety of materials in order to address how the female body has been viewed over time. Her combination of utilizing visual art and poetry is simple, but fully charged: revealing women’s relationships to their bodies, and the roles that those bodies have played throughout history. 

We hope that you enjoy our conversation with Kat as we talk about what it is like to teach yourself how to weave, what it means to learn and break the rules, and how materials and scale can impact your work.
