The Meeting of Fiber Techniques and Materials

June 28, 2020 – July 11, 2020

Polly Jacobs Giacchina

During this workshop students will learn about and enhance their hand weaving methods for the creation of sculptural vessels and wall pieces. You will explore and advance the techniques of twining, coiling, knotless netting, crochet, simple felting, stitching and random weave. The utilization of natural and man-made flexible fibers will assist in the layering, weaving textures and finding material relationships to develop your design ideas. During class participants will be encouraged to explore, investigate, construct and create. Open to all skill levels.


Polly Jacobs Giacchina studied at San Diego State University and independently while exploring natural materials and choosing fiber to create her organic sculptural art. She has exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. Giacchina has been published in American Craft Magazine, Fiber Art Now and several books on fiber art.
