Lucienne Coifman:Rep Weave

Weaver, Teacher, and Artist

Lucienne Coifman started weaving almost 40 years ago. She quickly made it a full-time occupation and has taught weaving for the past 30 years at the Guilford Art Center, the Creative Arts Workshop, and in her own studio; she has also conducted workshops throughout the Northeast and the Midwest.

For the past 30 years she has been studying and developing the many ways to use rep weave, and other related warp-faced weaves, experimenting with the use of different fibers in the process. Lucienne’s main interest has centered on color interactions and patterns, using up to 8 harnesses and using pick-up techniques when needed. Her new book, Rep, Rips, Reps Weave is now available. Her work has appeared in Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot, Handwoven, and has been included in many juried exhibits.
