Textile Arts LA Artist Talk: Molly Haynes
Join Textile Arts LA at the Craft in America Center for a Textile Talk with Los Angeles weaver and artist Molly Haynes. Saturday, May 27 from 10:30 am -11:30 am
Molly Haynes is a weaver working at the intersection of art, craft, and design. Her tactile sculptures explore structure and materiality—echoing tensions between humans and the natural world. She utilizes unconventional materials such as raw plant fiber, monofilament fishing lines, and salvaged marine ropes to construct undulating forms which blur the line between natural and machine-made.
Haynes earned her B.F.A. in Textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design and went on to design for the interior textiles industry, where she gained a deep understanding of fibers and the construction of cloth. After several years, she decided to delve into her personal practice to focus solely on handmade works that are free of utilitarian constraints. Her work has been exhibited internationally including New York, Los Angeles, Provincetown (MA), London, and Montreal.
