Most weavers have an ever-growing collection of yarn. For this class you are invited to bring a selection from your stash. As a group we’ll look at fiber content, size, color and texture, and brainstorm ideas for using up those odds and ends, specialty yarns, etc. Expect swaps: a fellow student may have the perfect complement to your yarn. You may opt to weave in class—perhaps with a mixed fiber warp or with an assortment of colors and/or textures. You’ll also leave with ideas on how to tackle that excess yarn at home! A computer will be available for designing, or bring your own. 4- and 8-harness looms with weaving accessories provided.
Judith T. Yamamoto enjoyed her Beginning Weaving class at Sievers in 1981 so much that she just kept coming back for more. Now Judie teaches and lectures nationally, and writes about weaving and related topics for magazines. Notable for their use of color and blending, her woven work, polymer clay jewelry and Temari have been featured in Handwoven magazine and seen at a variety of fiber art shows, galleries and shops.No tags for this post.
