Textiles Summer Session 2
June 9-21, 2019
Helle Trolle
Floating Threads

During this workshop you’ll experiment with the design potential achieved by combining weaving with a number of finishing methods that can change the surface and structure of the woven textile. We’ll focus especially on weaves with floats, which are open to a variety of different treatments. Techniques will include double weave, deflected double weave, woven shibori, and finishing methods for wool, crepe yarns, and polyester. Each student will make their own collection of samples and then a larger sculptural or functional weaving that explores the potential of a chosen technique. Joy Boutrup will be a guest in this workshop, and she will share her knowledge of combining finishing and weave structures. All levels. NOTE: Textiles workshops are taught in walk-up studios accessible by a stair lift. Code 02TB
