Textiles Spring Concentration
March 5 – April 28, 2024 (8 Weeks)
Delve deep into your personal artistic language through handwoven cloth and creating artwork with textile processes. After we cover basic weaving techniques we’ll be off to discover what magic we can make with the loom. We’ll experiment with nontraditional interventions such as unweaving and on-loom painting, explore the possibilities of immersion dyeing, and paint on thread and cloth. Off the loom, our woven cloth will become raw material as you learn to stabilize, layer, and assemble handwoven elements to create collage-style work. Come prepared to weave your booty off! All levels. Lower textiles studio. This workshop takes place in a second-floor walk-up studio that has partial access by a stair lift.
