This summer I will be teaching a class called Speculative Weaving at Ox-bow. I am so excited!
Here is more about the class...
Speculative Weaving, August 12-18, 2018
Weaving has often been associated with themes of time, rhythm, meditation, and materiality and for this workshop we weave small studies in response to these prompts. Students will be encouraged to consider the act of weaving as an end in itself, conceptualizing process, while also learning technical skills including tablet weaving, inkle weaving, finger weaving and pattern drafting. Woven studies will be developed on small portable looms and from there students will consider how they might invent new looms structures, weave into site-specific locations and create interactive projects. Concepts and theories will be introduced through readings, slide presentations and discussions that will provide the direction and inspiration for each student to develop their own inquiries and inventions.
