Join Tine Kindermann and Emily Socolov this summer in an Open Studio in Textile Arts. From techniques of reverse appliqué, loom and off-loom weaving, sewing, felting and knotting, students can embellish t-shirts, create a personal tallis*, craft a challah cover or just enjoy the colors and textures of fiber. Tejidos or weavings, form an important part of Latino – as well as global handicrafts. An introductory slide lecture will survey different artistic traditions. Participants will then be set free to create and the studio will be staffed throughout the day. Please bring t-shirts and any other fiber materials to repurpose.
*Note: Participants who plan on creating a tallis should contact the instructors to pre-order tzitzes and discuss design options at firstname.lastname@example.org.
