Textiles A Summer Session 3

TEXTILES SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Jovencia de la Paz
Pixel, Thread, Weave

In this workshop students will explore weaving and textile design through a detailed overview of pattern making and drafting. We’ll use drafting software to create a wide variety of weave structures, including color and weave, deflected double-cloth, and overshot. Students will find that these traditional structures can yield vibrant and contemporary designs through color manipulation, yarn choice, texture, and experimental warp and weft materials. We’ll also explore the important historical connection between computers and the loom, testing the relationships and perceived boundaries between the digital and the handmade. Students may make samplers, finished textiles for apparel or interior design, or other experimental projects. Some basic floor-loom experience will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels. Second-floor textiles studio.

Note: Students should bring a computer if they can; contact the studio operations manager if you are enrolled and are unable to bring a computer. studio_operations@penland.org
