Here’s our mission.
In May, Study group gathered for the finale of the year and harnessed the concept for our coming year Study topic, Botanical.
Whether you choose:
a fiber (i.e., hemp, cotton, bamboo, linen,)
a dye (i.e., indigo, madder)
a subject (i.e., weave a pictorial, tapestry, a color flow as in botanical subject)
a botanical object to weave (i.e., a three-dimensional object maybe, or felt?)
or a combination
The choices are vast, there being almost no restrictions. Using imaginations and all the resources we have available to us; this should prove to be a wonderful project. And exceedingly interesting for our exhibit that will be on display in April.
Bring your current work, questions, show and tell.
Your CWG newsletter editor didn’t add this to the spring newsletter. Apologies.
It is good news from Joan Horwich:
I was the moderator for a virtual MAFA class led by Mary Mandarino this past weekend. The class title was “making woven chenille”. Mary explained both how to create the chenille as well as how to weave a chenille rug. The chenille is woven in a plain weave structure using a variety of threads to make up the weft. After weaving the cloth, it is removed from the loom and cut into chenille strips. These strips are then used as the weft to create a beautiful lofty rug. I found this to be very interesting and something out of the ordinary. Hopefully, I will have a chance to weave a chenille rug in the near future.
