Limitations as License at Penland

June 5 @ 8:00 am - June 17 @ 5:00 pm

Friction with the perceived limitations of a discipline can often spark the fire of creative thinking and problem solving. In this class, weavers with some experience as well as craftspeople from different disciplines will learn (or review) the fundamentals of weaving. This will include measuring and winding warps, dressing looms, calculating sett, and drafting on paper and computer. These fundamentals may be seen as limitations, but during the second week of class we will apply the previous week’s acquired/honed skills to personal projects by exploring/deploying a variety of weaving techniques that challenge the looms’ limitations such as layered weaves, pile weaves, deflecting structures, and pick up techniques. All Levels
