Have you experienced a bad surface, loose edges, ribbing, been out of shed or a number of other technical problems in your weaving. Caron Penney is running a series of short online workshops which will address these and many others.
How does it work?
They will be run on Zoom and last one and a half hours. The workshops will concentrate on one specific problem at a time. Caron will introduce herself and the topic of discussion. She will then explain what the technical dilemma is and what is the likely route to having for instance an uneven surface, or tight edges. She will then look at different ways of resolving the problem, this will be done by demonstration but also Caron will draw on paper, sketches of the offending problem and then resolve them in the same way and by weaving the solution.
What is expected of you?
You can ask questions, bring samples of work that demonstrate the problems you have been experiencing and watch, take notes and interact with the group through the chat.
What should you expect?
This will be an informal discussion and demonstration about a specific technical problem in weaving. The workshops will be videoed and the video will be available for 7 days after the class. There may be some drawings produced by the tutor and if so these will be photographed and sent out afterwards. There are no formal handouts.
So why not stop scratching your head for the answer to these problems and join Caron for one or more of these fun but insightful workshops.
