It has happened to all of us. We see a gorgeous work of art, beautiful fall foliage, a photo in a magazine. The colors and textures inspire us and we want to honor them somehow. Let’s weave something to wear. In this lecture we will explore the endless possibilities of using a variety of materials, weights, textures and colors in one warp – how the choice of weave structure and weft can change the look and feel of the finished fabric and how to add width to a warp already on the loom. The program will include a show of classic, comfortable, fashionable garments made from the imaginative use of squares and rectangles.
