The Creative Passion
One of the things that units us is our desire to create.
Some of us do that intuitively, some of us need to learn some hints and tips for helping us bring what we visualize into concrete reality.
In addition to workshops on technique, we also offer:
Tien Chiu, who will provide information on how colour works in weaving in her two day workshop Fearless Colour.
Colour Explorations/Wild About Colour by Diana Twiss in her two day workshop geared towards spinners.
Bob Keates will present his workshop on using Fiberworks for Multi-shaft Weaving.
And artist Maureen Faulkner will do a two day workshop on design fundamentals for textile artists.
Many of our instructors are well versed in many facets of the craft of creating textiles and in addition to the 18 pre-conference two day workshops there will be 76 seminar slots. Most seminars will be two hours - plenty of time to get a 'taste' of the topic and find out if participants want to pursue that topic further. We have scheduled some of the topics twice because we feel they might be popular enough to run a second time. Some of the seminars needed 4 hours so those have been scheduled in two seminar time slots, in the morning and then in the afternoon. In order to sign up for the afternoon session, people must first sign up for the morning session. These have been identified with Part I and Part II in their title.
Our goal was to offer a wide ranging array of textile related topics. Our 24 instructors cover many different topics and we hope that everyone will find something intriguing.
