Event description

Description

ONE DAY WORKSHOPS | $85 + HST (ONE 6 HOUR CLASS ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY)

Working with a small picture frame that is pre-warped, participants with play with the threads to create their own free-form woven art! Some of the frames may be painted in bright colours while others may be natural wood. In this introduction to tapestry weaving participants will get to select a variety of yarns, textures, fibres and/or found items from mother earth to use in the weft. You’ll leave with a piece of woven art that is already framed and ready to hang or give as a beautiful hand-made gift!

MATERIAL COST: $10.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop. Students can bring scissors, pencil, paper, a black marker, and a fork. If they have specialty yarns they want to use, they are invited to bring them along to incorporate in the weaving.

Instructor - Karen LeBlanc

Born in Fredericton, NB, Karen LeBlanc learned the art of fine craft at the New Brunswick Craft School (now known as the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design). Karen has been weaving for over 40 years with a 10-year hiatus to pursue higher education (B.A., M.Ed) from 1986-1996. Karen’s passion for weaving and textiles has evolved into designing clothing (tunics, ponchos, etc.), textile products and fibre art. Karen plays with textures, patterns, and techniques in her home studio using cashmere, silk, alpaca, cotton, wool, and other fibres. She has worked with simple looms and techniques to high-tech computerized Jacquard looms.
