Weavers Design Study Group
Tuition $50.00

Intermediate
Christine Wilkinson
FW7206 Starts May 4 2017 (4-6pm) Thursdays (LTB Studio)

The Weavers Design Study Group meets weekly for 2 hours on Thursdays from 4-6pm in the Fiber Studio. The purpose of the group is to explore weave structures, textile designs and design planning. Group members bring their ideas, questions, and new discoveries to each week’s discussions with the aim of sharing ideas and getting group input on design or technical challenges. This new study group, suitable for intermediate level weavers, will start with explorations of woven textiles to determine the pattern, sett and fiber. Then we will move to practice with drawn-down, block design and other topics that arise from the group.
Required supplies: Notebook, graph paper, colored pencils, eraser. Registration is required. Study Group sessions are purchased in 5 session blocks. Attendance does not need to be weekly and the purchased sessions can be used any time that the Study Group is meeting.
