On-Going Learning: Weaving Schools and Workshops

Perhaps it’s time to step out of your studio and see what’s new in your fiber area. Or maybe it’s time to learn something entirely new and different. Betty Neill has been doing the leg work/research to find out what is new and intriguing in the world of craft schools and workshops — those that are both tried and true as well as brand new.
Come hear about schools and workshops that might not be on your radar right now, see what is available and perhaps be inspired to enroll. 
(And don’t forget that one of the benefits of Guild membership is our Scholarship Fund that can help cover some tuition costs.)

presented by Ruth Manning, an internationally known tapestry artist.


Tapestry weaving is a simple weave structure with a unique language. Join Ruth Manning as she shares her insights into what makes this weave structure so different from other loom-controlled weaves.

Scandinavian Weaving

Our Scandinavian theme covers several topics stretching across Norway, Sweden and Finland. Jane Olson Glidden will introduce us to warp-weighted looms, an ancient weaving method she became fascinated with during her trip to Norway last summer.

The Swedish Weaving study group will share with us the work they have been doing recently. Through towels, placemats and napkins the group has woven for exchanges, we can see the variety of weave structures they have explored.

Finally, with the help of Mandy Pedigo, we will get a glimpse into the history of weaving in Finland through the work of Maija Kolsi-Mäkelä.

Afternoon mini-workshop:
Continuing our Scandinavian theme of the day, join us to make a traditional heart basket. Learn about the many variations and make one to take home. 
Material cost: very affordable!

Designing with the Fibonacci sequence
Jennifer Moore, a nationally known weaver and author of The Weaver’s Studio: Doubleweave

Most of us know the basics of the Fibonacci series (0,1,1,2,3,5,8 etc) and may have used it in designing stripes but where else in nature do we find the sequence and what are the design implications and uses? 
Jennifers’s presentation will give us many new ideas to sharpen our design skills using the Fibonacci sequence.
