Textile Artist Aneesa Shami Partners with Helms Bakery to Host Open Studio + Workshops

Aneesa Shami visits Helms with a pop up temporary studio for six weeks to continue working on pieces in her "Syndication" series. Aneesa will also be offering a suite of 3 workshops during her residency at the Helms Design Center, two of which take place during the month of August. 

These workshops will highlight weaving, knitting, and quilting as three major facets of textile and fiber techniques. Each session will dive into a brief, introductory history of each technique, followed by hands-on instruction and experimentation. Participants are encouraged to play, make, learn, and connect with fiber materials and techniques in new ways. 

Methodical Weaving: Introduction begins with ancient weaving and textiles, moving into 16th - 20th century textiles and how the Industrial Revolution impacted the advancement of looms and weaving, which in turn assisted technological growth in the U.S. The hands-on portion of the workshop will include all materials to create a small weaving. 

Knitting As Protest: Introduction will begin with a brief history of knitting and its relation to weaving’s history, with focus on how knitting has evolved in modern and contemporary society. The hands-on workshop will include needles and yarn for participants to create a classic garter-stitch scarf.

Aneesa Shami's Artist-in-Residence Studio is located inside the Helms Design Center between the Vitra and Louis Poulsen showrooms. Free Parking is available in any Helms Bakery lot. helmsbakerydistrict.com

Jamie Hamilton: tight rope walking workshop

Jamie Hamilton: tight rope walking workshop

Jamie Hamilton will lead an informal tight rope walking workshop.  Participants will explore balance through the act of standing and walking upon a line.  We will explore possibility and limitation, hopefully expanding our sense of self in the process. 

The workshop will be held over a period of 4 hours and participants are welcome to come or go at their convenience. 

Jamie Hamilton is a sculptor and high wire walker based in Los Angeles.  Drawing from a varied background in sport, music and building, Hamilton's interdisciplinary work arises from curiosity about the limits of the body, knowledge and materials. Building wood, concrete and steel structures for Judy Pfaff, working with Tom Joyce and Bruce Nauman, and as a fabricator has solidified a knowledge of material and working processes that informs his artwork. Described by ARTnews as a “free-wheeling modern-day Leonardo,” Hamilton makes an art of pursuing balance in precarious circumstances, evoking both mythic themes and contemporary dilemmas.

We Are All Americans - Oral History Recording Workshop

  • 455 Jung Jing Road Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Inspired by the fact that Michele Jaquis’ Russian great-grandfather gained his US citizenship after serving in the US Army and her Austrian (or Russian, or Latvian - depending on who is telling the story) great-grandmother entered the US on fake passport, Michele has been recording conversations about how family stories are passed down from generation to generation and what it means to be American in the contexts of multiculturalism, immigration, military service, black lives matter, white privilege, and indigeneity. 

Open to all with an interest in sharing stories about how their families became Americans, participants will engage and utilize the art of conversation and learn the basics of audio recording with professional digital recorders and smartphones. 

A series of conversations will be recorded that will contribute to an ongoing collection and future podcast series. Participants will leave with an mp3 file of their own recording and gain access to the whole collection online.
