Introduction to Woven Shibori
This program introduces Catharine's early work and chronicles the discovery and exploration of woven shibori and its many applications. She will discuss inspirations and problem solving.
Lace, by definition, is "a constructed textile that has opaque and transparent areas." What are the opportunities for weavers to explore the concept of lace? We will take a look at nontraditional, contemporary lace, woven and non-woven, using construction, burn-out and the concept of transparency.
