Susanna Monette starting a loom project.

August First Friday at Tehachapi Treasure Trove will feature bead loom weaving with Susanna Monette. Susanna creates her own designs and uses a variety of loom types to create the desired effects. Susanna will have on display several major projects using bead loom pieces, hand beaded pieces and dream catcher weaving as well as beaded accessories and dream catchers.

An appreciation of geometric design has enabled Susanna to create unique designs using themes such as desert life, native animals and mother earth. Susanna will display patterns, various loom types and demo weaving techniques. Folks are invited to come and weave a row or two on our community pieces.

Born and raised in suburban New York and Boston, Susanna went to college in Wisconsin and spent 30 years in the Midwest. In the early 90s she started her westward journey and lived in Nevada and Arizona before moving to California in 2006 to be near her son. She has been experimenting with various art forms for the past 20 years or so. Susanna has been actively involved in the Tehachapi art world since purchasing a home in California City in 2009. She currently displays earth based sculpture, tie dye clothing, dream catchers and bead work at the Treasure Trove where she is a working partner.

Come join us to say "Hi" to Susanna, try your hand at bead loom weaving and have some food and wine while listening to Art Larson on clarinet.
