Jennifer Boldt, OCA postgraduate student and weaver

Jennifer Boldt, a postgraduatestudent of the Open College of the Arts (OCA) from Chicago, Illinois, has been shortlisted in the 3rd International Emerging Artist Award (OCA press release here).

Jennifer’s website:

Jennifer’s work is an exciting, contemporary, use of weaving. This is absolutely the sort of work or approach to work that I want to get to. Even more exciting is that she has chosen to be a student at OCA. The undergraduate course doesn’t seem to have much specifically focused on constructed textiles and I sometimes wonder if my OCA studies are a diversion, an interesting sidetrack. Asked and answered?

    Such kind words…thank you. I am enjoying the grad program with OCA, but a lot of my weaving support comes from fellow weaver friends. In weaving I think it is so important to try new structures and techniques…see where you can push them and hand manipulate them.
    Maybe we should start an OCA weavers group on Facebook? We could trouble shoot and encourage each other…undergrad AND grad students!
