Ragnhild Langlet

Ragnhild Langlet (1934- ) a Swedish textile artist spent much of her career in the San Francisco Bay area. In 1955 she studied ceramics at the Konstfack Skolan School in Stockholm. She began teaching at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1956
through 1958, and the University of California, Berkeley in 1960. Langlet has worked in many media, crafting works from fabrics and linen as well as metals. She has worked extensively with nuihaku, a Japanese technique of couching metal-foil covered thin cords.
Ragnhild Langlet was one of the eighteen or so artists commissioned by RIT in 1967 to provide works of art for the institute's nearly completed Henrietta campus. The result of Langlet's efforts was a dynamic tapestry that originally stretched across the interior wall of the main cafeteria, now the Brick City Cafe.
