The nonprofit Praxis Fiber Workshop took over a storefront on Waterloo Road that wasn’t living up to its potential and transformed it into yet another art-making space on the street. The sprawling space was a flea market/junk store before Praxis moved in and opened its doors in the summer of 2015. Out went the junk and in came dozens of looms and dyeing supplies donated by the Cleveland Institute of Art. At Praxis, fiber artists of all stripes can practice their craft, novices can take classes to learn to weave, and visitors can admire the fiber-based art in the beautiful front gallery with its natural light and hardwood floor. The loom in the front window beckons passersby to stop in and try their hand.
