Designed as a follow-on workshop for those who have taken one of my Foundations of Handweaving workshops, I am pleased to be working once more with domecíl, to host a workshop for those who are comfortable with basic handweaving techniques and would like to deepen their experience and skill.
In this two hour in-person workshop, we will explore the endless creative possibilities open to us as you connect with the fibers and discover your own personal weaving style. We will look at ways to prepare to weave; how to slow yourself down to allow your creativity to express itself and we will explore a variety of weaving techniques including split loop, double strand and knot techniques.
We will also look at how to combine different textures and colors to make sure that your weaving is a personal expression and truly your own. Sustainability will also be something we consider, as I encourage you to bring your own adult socks along and I will demonstrate how you can repurpose them for use in your handweaving, giving the fibers a new lease of life.
You should bring your own stash of loops or purchase loops of your choosing from my website to create your weavings. I have a range of cotton loops, as well as specially curated bags of hand-dyed cotton and wool loops.
The workshop will take place Saturday, March 18th from 11am-1pm (PT) at domecíl, Santa Barbara.
The workshop will be held at:
1221 State St
Suite 7, Victoria Court
In the Arts District of Santa Barbara
The workshop costs $50 per person and you will need to bring your own small metal loom and cotton / wool loops and old adult socks. Materials can be purchased from my online store ahead of the workshop.
I very much look forward to helping you deepen your skills and connection to this craft.
