Weaving with Wire and Metal Workshop
with Susan McGehee
There is an additional $30 materials fee payable to the instructor.
Dates: Saturday, May 26, 1:00 – 4:00 pm and
Sunday, May 27, 2007, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm (at Anacapa Fine Yarns in Ventura)
Intermediate and advanced weavers will learn that wire has many similarities to yarn and is easier to weave than they thought. A variety of wires and metals will be used to create a 3-inch wide, 72-inch long sampler. Techniques on how to handle metals on the loom, sources of materials and a history of woven metals will be discussed. Everyone will go home with a positive attitude towards using wire on the loom, a sampler and a metal neckpiece.
Please note: since this workshop is 1.5 days, rather than the usual 3 days, participants may need to complete the sampler and neckpiece at home. A supply list will be emailed to participants when registration payment is received.
To register for this workshop, please mail your check, payable to VCHSG, to Elisa Purnell, as soon as possible. If we do not have sufficient interest by April 28 to cover the workshop expenses, this workshop could be cancelled.
