Join us in the weaving studio this spring! Whether you are a seasoned weaver looking to grow your practice, or you have yet to meet your first loom, this class is for you! We will create individual warps, warp our looms, and create personalized fabric pieces. We will explore different types of patterns, weaving stitches, and weaving traditions. This semester we will also spend time exploring two new topics: 1) color choices, combinations, and ‘mix’ color; and 2) the ways we can continue a piece once it’s off the loom! We will look at how to spice up the finishing/fringe process, as well as how you can use your handwoven fabric to create sewn pieces.
Students will have time to explore at their own pace, and explore personally driven projects. I’m here to guide your journey, and am happy to help you accomplish your weaving goals. Most of what we will go over is applicable to any weaving experience; and time for students to receive personalized instruction is included in the class plan. If there is a particular technique process you would like to explore, please contact the instructor to discuss more personalized content.
Registration: Floor looms are limited to seven and are reserved for web registration only; but if you are interested in weaving on your own portable loom, such as a ridged heddle, or band loom, we can accommodate you! In that case, please contact your instructor, Morgan Shipps, and she will add you to the class personally. Morgan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or e_morgan_shipps_studio on Instagram.
