Just a short update to say that the newest VisArts catalog has been posted and that I have been able to turn my previous frame weaving workshop into a a 4 day class! If you have Saturdays free between 1 and 330 this coming February, I would love to have you!
Explore the art of weaving on a portable frame loom. With an emphasis on experimental weaving, students will learn different warping methods as well as advanced weaving techniques. Color striping, blending, basic shape construction, eccentric weft, and rya knots are only some of the techniques that students will explore. Students will learn how to construct their very own frame loom that can be taken home for future projects. Materials will be provided but students are encouraged to bring favorite yarns or anything that can be woven in to your completed works!
