Episode 59: Material Meaning with Cameron Taylor-Brown

by Sarah Resnick

This week on the podcast, I’m talking to Cameron Taylor-Brown. Cameron Taylor-Brown has been working in the worlds of fiber, education, and commerce since the 1970’s. She studied at UC Berkeley and the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, and her work has been widely exhibited and published. She is curating an exhibit for the Craft in America Center in LA called Material Meaning: A Living Legacy of Anni Albers, which will feature work by ten contemporary American artists and designers working with textiles who are strongly influenced by Anni Albers. 

This episode was sponsored by Heddlecraft, a digital weaving magazine with the sole objective of sharing the passion for weaving. For more information about Heddlecraft, go to www.heddlecraft.com .
