What to Bring: Fun attitude and small scissors. If you want to bring your own fibers, threads, yarns, fabric bits 2-5 inches by 10 inches or so I will refund $10 of your workshop fee.
If I am providing the weaving supplies, let me know what colors you want to work with.
Brief write up and photo(s) to post in newsletter and on-line. Pin Weaving:
In 6 hours (10-4pm) Create a small pin weaving using threads, yarns, lightweight fabrics and roving. This will be fused on the back to hold it together. No tight compacting of rows needed. This is similar to a tapestry type weaving method. Then dye sheer silk organza for the background panel. Fuse the weaving to the panel. Cover with tulle and free motion (bring your machine or I can do this part for you if you don’t sew). Cut away tulle to reveal contrasting fabrics and yarns. Embellish with beads, hand dyed ribbons and any special trinkets you would like to bring with you. All supplies are provided for the $45 workshop. Limited to 15-20 at the Beach Art Center. The project you do can be a wall hanging or cut up into smaller pieces, mounted on the silk organza and fused to cardstock for a unique textured greeting card. I will provide supplies: pin weaving board the student takes home, fibers, fabrics, fusible, silk organza and dyes, etc. If people want to bring their own threads, fibers, fabrics, $10 will be refunded by Marlene when you arrive to class.
