The Tactile Sensibility Workshop is designed to motivate and inspire you to focus on weaving as a creative process by exploring a variety of materials. Inspired by the iconic artist and designer Anni Albers, this workshop will expand your vocabulary in the tactile language of weaving.
During this workshop, artist and textile designer Brittany Wittman McLaughlin will show you how to create your own weaving using a variety of techniques, beautiful yarns, and other materials.
Using images of texture from nature as a starting point, students will interpret the pictures into woven compositions. Participants will learn the essentials of frame loom weaving, including:
•How to set up the frame loom
•The mechanics of weaving and basic woven structures
•Creating textures and patterns
•How to finish a completed weaving
•Hands-on instruction and plenty of time to weave!
Price includes a wooden Harrisville lap loom, made in USA. A variety of materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring yarns and materials from their own fiber collections. Students should also consider weaving with ribbons, tapes, and other non-conventional materials for weaving.
*Class limited to 12 participants and preregistration is required. Workshop fee includes a lap loom you keep at the end.
