Lucienne Coifman

Lucienne Coifman has taught weaving for almost 40 years at the Guilford Art Center and Creative Arts Workshop and in her own Connecticut studio. She has also conducted workshops throughout the Northeast and Midwest. Her work has appeared in many juried exhibits and in Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot and Handwoven magazines. For the past 30 years, Lucienne has been studying variations on traditional rep weaving techniques. Working with as many as eight harnesses, she experiments with different fibers, colors, and patterns, using pick-up techniques when needed. Her rep weave designs offer innovative variations on traditional forms and familiar patterns. Lucienne’s recent book Rep, Rips, Reps: Projects, Instruction, and Inspiration, is a complete Rep Weaving workshop for both beginning and advanced weavers.
