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.
