ARU/CFT 542 COLOR & TEXTILES-THE WOVEN SCARF
June 21 – July 2, 2014
Scarves, shawls, rebozos and capes…..beautiful cloth, graceful lines, warm, fuzzy, light and ethereal all this and more will be explored in this beginning to advanced workshop focusing on woven textiles, pattern and surface as it relates to wearable cloth used in close connection to the neck, face and body.
Hand weaving the day away. After learning basic skills, the process of weaving will be explored through the investment of sampling. The student will weave a series of examples using a variety of structures, materials and techniques. Through pattern development, repetition, color interaction and finishing the weaver will investigate the rhythms of woven structure that are sometimes elusive to the beginner. The focus is on producing hand-woven cloth that has a quality of hand and design. For the final project, each student develops a fabric that can be used in apparel, especially for scarves and accessories.
