The Workshop Residence: Jennifer Morla Residency

  • “After six weeks of experimentation at the Workshop Residence, award-winning graphic Designer Jennifer Morla developed a collection of rugs, cutwork wall hangings, and table coverings, all made of gray industrial wool felt.”

  • Jennifer Morla’s collaborations extend into the design community as an educator and artist. The Workshop Residence, founded by creative advocate Ann Hatch, invited Morla to participate in the program as a resident artist in the spring. Morla investigated typographic forms as applied to floor coverings and wall panels. Working with 100% wool, un-dyed industrial felt, she created typographic arrangements that re-contextualize the typeface from its original purpose, transforming it into patterns of cut and layered felt. The products are available for purchase from the Workshop Residence website.
