Isa Rodrigues is a textile artist + educator from the South of Portugal, currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
Isa started playing with textiles with her grandmothers at the age of 5, with after school afternoons filled with knitting and embroidery projects. After receiving her MA in Textile Conservation, Isa moved from Lisboa to New York to work and learn from the textile collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2010, she joined the founding team of the Textile Arts Center, where she still currently works. She also teaches weaving, natural dyeing and surface design at TAC and many other venues.
She likes to experiment and create with weaving and natural dyes, and her best ideas tend to appear to her in dreams.
