November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020
The focus of this workshop is to encourage students to explore openwork textile structures that include knotted netting and knotless netting. You will learn to reserve space for air and the importance of utilizing what is “not there” to build into studio projects, using a range of materials. Participants will discover how to become comfortable with netting techniques and understand how they can be used to express ideas in sculptural baskets. The goal of the workshop is discovery and to provide ways for students to push their own limits of imagination about what they have to say in their work. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
