Weaving is about returning home, using our hands, connecting to our inner creativity in a way that is safe, open and expressive. It can help us to settle our restless minds, open our hearts and connect more deeply with who we really are. The colors we reach for and spend time with can make a difference to our feelings for the piece we are working on, our mood as we look at it, our thoughts as we weave. Far and away, my favorite color to work with is indigo. For me, it is the color of calm.
I am pleased to launch this new online workshop designed for those who are already familiar with handweaving and who wish to take their experience to the next level. In this two-hour class, we will explore how our work evolves as we use a combination of textured, handmade sock loops, hand-dyed loops and repurposed denim loops, all in various shades of indigo. We will look at the way a single color can still create pieces of great originality and how this particular palette can change our emotional response to our work.
The workshop will take place via Zoom on Saturday, May 6th 2023, 10am-12pm (PT) / 1-3pm (ET)
Workshop participants will need to provide their own supplies.
You may consider the following to add to your loop selection:
- A set of hand-dyed indigo loops from my curated loops collection here
- A set of hand-dyed wool loops in a blue / indigo of your choice from my curated loops collection here
- Small scissors for clipping loose threads (available here)
The workshop would suit weavers who already have basic potholder weaving skills.
The class will be held online via Zoom and I very much look forward to seeing you May 6th. Details of how to access the workshop will be sent closer to the date.
