Workshop: Bhutanese Kushutara Weaving
October 10-11, 2015, 10am-5pm with an hour lunch. Cost: $125 (price reduced)
In this workshop, you will explore traditional Bhutanese motifs and begin to combine 2-5 of the 5 basic stitches to weave these motifs and to experiment with your own designs. You will examine samples of Bhutanese kushutara cloth and learn to identify how different patterns are created, to enable you to continue your own explorations after the workshop.

Debbie Davis will present "Elizabeth Buckley Tapestry Workshop: The workshop experience from the perspective of a first-time workshop/weaving class attendee with decades of weaving practice."
Philippa Lack: "Talking about how the Strickler money helped me expand my horizons and taught me new techniques. Susan Louise Moyer was my first teacher, and is an inspiring mentor who touched not only on a particular technique but general design principles as well. The workshop was only for two days, but I learned a good deal about mixing colors and creating dye cakes so that you can paint on silk without resorting to resist lines to contain the dyes. This is a huge departure for those who paint on silk; before, we had to depend on our resist lines holding to achieve something nearing perfection. Now, it is possible to work more freely."
Heide Murray: "I will be presenting techniques I learned in Patricia Sparks' felted pictures workshop. I will focus on presenting color blending and layering along with a power tool she taught us how to use with her mostly dry wool felting process."
