Abby Wetsman

A New Orleans Textile Artist

As a textile artist I am stretched between fine art and craft. Often these two ideas are distinguished by function. I enjoy pushing the definition to include the function of beauty and decoration.  I create textiles that are functional and non functional, as well as  historical to non traditional. 

As an environmentalist, I mostly use remnants and scraps in my personal work and whenever I can in commissions.

At Tchoup Industries I cut and sew bags. 

I also create textiles for bags and bandanas.

I teach 7-13 year olds machine and hand sewing after-school at Chateau Sew & Sew.

I spend Summers teaching at Country Day Creative Arts. It's my favorite time of the year!

I am the part time art teacher at the 

Jewish Community Day School: PreK-6th.
