SAIPUA Fiber Series: WEAVING - August 27

260.00

Instructor: Owyn Ruck, Co-founder and former director of the Textile Arts Center and current adjunct faculty at Parsons. 

Our Weaving class is the last in a series of three fiber classes that explores the cycles and relationships between plants, animals, the creative process and product. As one of the oldest art forms, weaving allows our bodies to create something from nothing. A simple grid structure, holds an understanding of the balance between order and chaos -- and also a way of using yarn to draw, create shapes, study color and texture. Whether it’s end use is functional or not, the process of tapestry weaving is meditative and connective, drawing in a closer relationship to our objects and how they form. Students will receive a frame loom and tools, skein of Saipua yarn, and explore other materials for creating their own weaving. 

Each class can stand alone, or be taken in succession-- following the fiber from World’s End sheep through processing, spinning, dyeing, and weaving. Refreshments will be served.

August 27, 2017 | Sunday from 1PM to 5PM

Limited to 15 participants; no experience or knowledge necessary. All materials will be provided.

Owyn was the co-founder and director of the Textile Arts Center in NYC. She is currently adjunct faculty at Parsons, and continues to lead textile-oriented workshops and retreats through SUCCURRO - a healing studio investigating creative energy as the source for personal and collective transformation.
