Preconference workshop and keynote speaker
Improv Weaving: Break the Rules!
Friday, November 5, 1 – 4 pm
Do you ever want to just sit down and weave, without bothering with a cartoon or even a sketch? Do you wonder sometimes what would happen if. . . ? This is your chance to find out! Explore what happens if you break some of the “rules” of tapestry. What happens if you distort the grid? Leave open spaces and slits? Make the warp a prominent player? Experiment with variations in sett and beat? There are lots of exciting possibilities. We’ll also talk about pros and cons of various small looms, and touch on ways to mount small tapestries to really show them off.
