Regina Vorgang, Weaver


Regina_Vorgang_Master_Weaver_Ventura_CA_500A professional graphic designer since 1980, Regina Vorgang has garnered awards for her design projects and built a successful graphic creative design studio in Stamford, Connecticut.

After many years as a graphic designer and working on a computer, Regina longed to get back to creating artwork by hand. Formally trained in traditional arts along with graphic design, she was always intrigued by the art and craft of weaving. She participated in a variety of weaving workshops and classes until she found her love of weaving with wool and making tapestries and rugs.

In 2002 Regina moved to Ventura, California, where she turned her focus to combining her unique graphic vision and weaving skills to create handwoven tapestries and rugs that bring traditional craft and contemporary color and design to her pieces. Her rugs can be displayed on the wall or used on the floor to bring “art to the floor”.

In 2005 Regina was invited to join Designing Weavers, a Los Angeles based juried fiber artists guild. Designing Weavers strives to promote all fiber arts, to develop and share ideas, and to provide inspiration while also motivating and encouraging excellence. Regina served as Co-president of the group during the 2006-2007 year. She is a member of the American Craft Council, American Tapestry Alliance, Handweavers Guild of America, Studio Channel Islands Art Center, and the Maryland Federation of Art.

Regina’s studio is located at Studio Channel Islands in Camarillo, CA. She shows her work at her studio, gallery exhibitions, and juried art and craft shows such as the American Craft Council, Contemporary Crafts Market, and the Southwest Arts Festival.
