Event description

Description

Dates: 25 - 28 July 2018

Times: 10 - 4.30pm, lunch 1.00 - 2.00pm

Level: Beginners with a small amount of experience to intermediate. (no complete beginners)

Tutor: Caron Penney

Assisted by: Katharine Swailes (Thursday - Saturday)

Course Description. This is a lively and varied workshop. It is designed to develop and encourage weavers to look deeper into the technique of tapestry weaving. The course relies on both experienced weavers and new students to create an exciting dialogue. Experimentation, dexterity and a sense of fun and risk taking are encouraged. Those students that are more experienced should bring ideas which can be manipulated, enlarged and used as a vehicle to make an exciting development in your work. Design approaches which will be encouraged include those exploring geometric / graphic mark-making. If you are a beginner the tutor will provide samples or design ideas for you to follow.

There will be a series of demonstrations to help the students progress through the four day workshop. Beginners will be guided through the basic techniques, starting with warping up a frame.

The course will be run in the Mill Studio which is alongside Weftfaced’s own studio and students will be able to see the workshop during the class. Caron will use resources from her studio which will include looms, books, yarns, and materials. However students are encouraged to bring their own materials.

Please feel free to contact us with your ideas in advance, especially if you are warping up prior to starting the workshop.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day in the small kitchenette.
