Instructor: Larry Weyand

This rug hooking workshop will focus on digital patterning and photo-based design strategies. Over the course of six weeks, participants will learn to create bold and original layouts for their mats, learning simple yet effective photo-transfer technologies. Basic Photoshop knowledge, transfer techniques and alternative material exploration will be covered throughout the workshop.

About the Instructor: Larry Weyand is a performance artist and rug hooker whose work defies the established properties of traditional floor decor and domesticity. Fueled by the complex history of processed foods and emotional trauma, Larry investigates how hard-to-swallow narratives can occupy space within the soft, fluffy boundaries of textile-based craft.

Having completed their MFA at Concordia University in Fibres & Material Practices, Larry is now a visiting professor in Fibres & Textiles at Memorial University’s Grenfell campus in their new home in Newfoundland. Growing up in both Montreal, Quebec and Biddeford, Maine, Larry enjoys a good road trip.
