Woven Moments: Photo, Paper, Thread; An off-loom workshop
Christine Mauersberger, Instructor
Date: Sunday, September 17th, 2023 (9am-3pm)
Join visiting artist, Christine Mauersberger to learn how to weave without a loom using your own photos, handmade papers, and/or thread/yarn. Remember weaving colored papers in grade school? It was simple and fun. You do not need to know how to weave but you will soon understand the technique and be on your way to hours of fun with simple tools.You will bring your own photograph(s) no larger than 5” x 7” ready to cut them into strips for weaving. Usually a photograph that is printed on 8 ½”x 11” paper is large enough. I like to print my pictures at 5” x 7” on a letter-sized paper, allowing for a nice margin around the print. Don’t have a photo? Perhaps you’ve collected specialty papers or old National Geographic maps just waiting for the ‘right’ time to use them. Or you have a stash of beautiful yarns or threads that you once planned to knit with but now, they are pretty skeins of color just waiting for a job to do.
