Linda Hartshorn will be joining us to share her love of weaving and dyeing. We are very lucky to have with us at this time as she looks forward to stepping into semi-retirement in 2024.
Linda is a weaver and dyer, known for her unique dyework and lively use of color in her handwoven textiles. Linda weaves and dyes in her home on the redwood coast of northern California, and teaches weaving at the Ink People Center for the Arts in Eureka. Linda enjoys leading workshops and brings her positive, fun and supportive teaching style to events all over the country. She is a two time recipient of the Victor Thomas Jacoby Award for spinners, weavers and dyers.
Linda Hartshorn will guide us through painting our own warps.
Painted warps add a whole new dimension to your weaving, and they are so much fun to weave on! Paint a warp for your project with fiber reactive dyes. Learn how to sett a warp emphasis fabric, and how to use warp painting in combination with various weave structures. Take your painted warp home to weave!
We will be painting warps for a tencel scarf. The warps will be pre-wound at home according to instructions. Suggestions and ideas for how to weave the project will also be given.
There is a $15.00 materials fee payable to Linda.
As we close out the year, we invite all recipients of guild scholarships to share with us their experience at the workshop they attended. We would love to hear about new things you learned, what you created, your observations, and recommendations for others to attend this workshop.
After the presentations, we invite everyone to enjoy a potluck with other members of the guild. Bring a dish and your own place setting.
