Woof and Drash: Meet the Artist
Sponsor Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description Berit Engen began weaving as a child in Norway, and now practices this ancient craft of entwining woof (horizontal threads) with warp (vertical threads) from her home in Oak Park, Illinois. She finds inspiration for her work in the richness and diversity of the Jewish experience: from the laws of the Torah to the songs of Leonard Cohen, from the chanting of ancient prayers to the satiric incisiveness of Yiddish curses. Meet her as she shares the Spertus Institute exhibit of her unique miniature tapestries.
