Weaving with recycled materials
This workshop will explore the uses of different materials that may end up in the land fill. Students will discuss using recycled materials to weave rugs, runners, bags, chenille (twice woven rugs), etc. and clothing... yes clothing.
Experimenting with materials including plastic bags, video tape, fabric stashes, scraps, rope, etc. students will create a sample piece that shows them the versatility of the found materials.
Students will have the opportunity to get out of their comfort zones and delve into the magic of playing with possibilities.
Come with a loom warped in straight twill and explore the many ways you can use the excesses of waste - a fitting direction of the ANWG's focus.
Some looms available as per request and all materials will be provided, though students are free to bring odds and ends.
