In this video, textile artist Lua Rivera shares with us one of her most interesting techniques that she uses to create her beautiful artworks all over the world.
Structural weaving can be adapted to many projects: it is flexible yet very strong, playable and it’s fun to make.
Let’s try out Lua Rivera’s technique!

Lua Rivera makes art to erase the boundaries between disciplines, promoting a free interaction between them and allowing the exhibition to transcend the walls of the gallery. Lua based her artwork in processes such as nesting, growth and adaptation of organisms. As a visual artist she is distinguished from her continuous search and use of multidisciplinary resources such as intervention, collage, photography and textiles.L’arte di Lua Rivera cancella i limiti tra le discipline promuovendo, tra loro, una libera interazione e permettendo all’opera di trascendere i muri della galleria. Lua radica le sue opere in processi di nidificazione, crescita e adattamento degli organismi all’ambiente. La sua pratica artistica si caratterizza nella continua ricerca e nell’uso di risorse multi disciplinari come l’installazione, il collage, la fotografia e il tessile.
