Sophia Borowska

Sophia Borowska is an artist and weaver based in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal, Canada. She creates site-specific installations combining textiles with salvaged construction materials like concrete, brick, and steel.

She recentres women’s perspectives and contributions turban development through historical research, photography, and laborious, feminine-coded textile processes.

Borowska received her BFA in Fibres and Material Practices from Concordia University in 2016. Her final year thesis project on digital weaving resulted in a book and website entitled Data Excess ( She has exhibited across Canada and internationally in Denmark, Finland, and Germany. Borowska’s sculptural approach to weaving has earned her grants and awards from institutions including the Handweavers’ Guild of America, Canada Council, CALQ, and SODEC.
