Objects and Other Objectives

October 27, 2019 – November 2, 2019

Lissa Hunter

During this workshop students will incorporate found objects and materials into their textile work. They might include a rusted muffler you picked up on the street or the 500 seedpods you collected last fall. You may also incorporate wood or clay into your work. Participants will also learn to use coiling, twining, looping, knotting and crochet methods. Emphasis is placed on individual needs and solutions while considering structure, good design, messaging and working in series and multiples. Some fiber technique skills are helpful.
