Ariel Rosenblum holds a B.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and M.A. in Material Culture Studies from the Bard Graduate Center. She has been teaching and facilitating arts experiences for over a decade in classroom, workshop and gallery settings. In her studio practice, Ariel works with traditional textile processes including feltmaking, weaving and dyeing. She combines these historical textile production techniques with unconventional materials as a means to explore sensory perception and traces of time—and sees learning from the past as a way to situate her self in the present.
