Betil Daḡdelen (b.1978) grew up in Izmir, Türkiye, a culture steeped in fabric arts. She developed her unique approach to weaving through a self-directed curriculum of material, color and pattern study and travels to learn native techniques within New Mexico, Peru and her home country Türkiye. Her work mixes traditional methods with an improvisational approach to patterning and confidently weaves into and around sculpted forms.
