Holes, Gaps and Layers

Ready to add new dimension to your fibre art? Here’s a chance to learn how to create empty spaces in our work and how to bridge the resulting openings so that the whole piece not only holds together but also adds pleasing elements to the composition. We will spend the day exploring various techniques for making holes including drawing thread, burning, incorporating dissolvable materials, and creating work in sections.

Then, we will cover several joining methods such as stitching, strapping, looping and beading.
Participants will be able to make several samples for future reference.
