THEO MOORMAN INLAY TECHNIQUE ADAPTED TO CLOTHING
Saturday, Sunday & Monday
Date: April 29,30, May 1, 2017
9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Elevate your handwoven garments into the arena of wearable art. The Theo Moorman inlay technique allows you to create an isolated tapestry-like image of any shape or size, wherever desired on the surface of the background cloth. During this three day workshop, the versatility of this structure will become apparent as you weave samples on a pre-warped 4-H loom. You will learn to adapt the technique for clothing through fibre selection, appropriate garment styles, placement of design elements, weaving with a cartoon, and incorporating threading variations to suit special needs. This weave structure is equally useful for ecclesiastical pieces, wall hangings, accessories, and interiors and is not limited to use on clothing. Instructions for setting up your loom and your supply list will be available on registration.
