Woven Lace Structures: Intersections And Articulations
June 7, 2020 – June 13, 2020
In woven cloth, warp threads are anchored at both ends then crossed at a 90-degree angle by weft threads to create interlacements of right angles. During this workshop students will investigate patterns that manipulate those right angles, allowing threads to bend and curve once removed from the tension of the loom. Participants will be introduced to processes including open weave, leno lace and huck lace. Augmented by readings, discussion and collage you will explore the cultural and social associations of your materials to uncover embedded meaning. Students will create a sample of each introduced structure before designing and producing an original work of their own. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
