Through an investigation of structural and material inlay, this workshop will explore techniques for breaking the grid of weaving outside of traditional tapestry techniques. During the 3 days we will cover techniques for discontinuous weave structures, explore the interaction of color, and think about weaving as drawing. A basic understanding of weaving is helpful but not required.
