    Gourd Fiber Fun
    Gourd Fiber Fun
    10/12 LEFT  

    Instructor: Fonda Haddad


    Skill Level: All Levels


    Description:

    Using cleaned and pre-cut gourds, we will create three art objects. We will learn a variety of techniques, including twining, Teneriffe, weaving, dream catchers, and the use of stains and ink dyes.


    Friday will be basic basketry with twined reed and seagrass with the embellishment of Cherokee Curls. Starting with a gourd bowl, you will cut out the spaces for the seagrass and flat reed spokes. You may dye the gourd or keep it natural. Twining will secure the spokes and a reed border will complete the rim.


    Saturday we will concentrate on embellishing with the lace technique of Teneriffe, which is usually associated with the middle of pine needle baskets. We will use it in open spaces, as stitches for button / bead flowers or other objects, and as an overlay of painted inks.

    0/18 LEFT  

    Instructor: Tom Knisely


    Skill Level: Intermediate; must be able to warp loom prior to class, read a draft, and handle more than one shuttle.


    Description:

    In this workshop, we will be pushing the boundaries of traditional Huck Lace. For generations, Huck Lace has been woven in cotton or linen with warp and weft threads of the same size and color, allowing the warp floats and weft floats to be the focus of the pattern.


    We will apply color and weave theory to a Huck threading. Light and dark color threads will be arranged in a specific order and treaded and woven with alternating color arrangements to create beautiful fabrics that go way beyond the normal traditions of weaving Huck Lace.


    You will weave a sampler threaded in a gamp format. You will arrange different color and weave threadings in the same basic four-shaft Huck threading. Numerous treadling combinations will give you dozens of different fabric samples to weave and explore. Requires a minimum of a four-harness loom.

    Students to Bring: A loom warped per instructions sent before class, three shuttles, bobbins, bobbin winder, scissors, tape measure, pins and weights for broken warp ends or floating selvedges, remaining warp thread to use as weft, any additional colors of thread that you might want to try during class, notebook with pen or pencil, graph paper with 4 or 5 to the inch graph, colored pencils.

This workshop focuses on learning the techniques used by Cambodian artists to create these 2/1 twills with patterned wefts. Working with natural fibers (tencel, cotton, silk, or wool) and indigo dyes, yarns will be tied and dyed during the workshop. You will have the opportunity to study Khmer textile samples and you will learn to graph designs. You will then make preliminary samples and learn to create individual designs.


    A variety of bright colors and neutral colors may be used. Working with indigo on white, a range of blues will be achieved through repeated dipping. When bright colors are used, a different range of blended colors will be achieved.

    18/24 LEFT  

    Instructor: Meg Stump


    Skill Level: All levels; no prior knowledge needed as the class will walk students from introduction to achievement.


    Description:


    Explore the world of pin loom weaving from soup to nuts, stem to stern, first date to final rose. We will start by learning to weave on the pin loom and create a first project: your choice of a rose or coasters. Learn and practice the essential pin loom joining techniques. Build your own collection of weft float pattern samples. You can choose to start your own shawl or scarf right in class.

    Tablet Weaving Basics and Beyond
    Tablet Weaving Basics and Beyond
    2/16 LEFT  

    Instructor: John Mullarkey


    Skill Level: Beginner


    Description:

    We will start with threaded-in patterns. These are wonderful multi-colored patterns that appear as if by magic. Simple turning creates complicated patterns because of the setup. Then we will move to Sulawesi tablet weaving, named for the Indonesian Isle of the same name. Bold patterns in three colors require following charts and individual card turning to create the patterns.


    Materials Fee: $15 for 20 cards and a shuttle.


    The materials fee is paid directly to the instructor during class.


    Students to Bring: Four balls or cones of 10/2 mercerized cotton or #10 crochet cotton, each at least one ounce; three colors are required: one cone each of colors A and B, two cones of color C; the colors should contrast.

     
    Wedge Weave Fundamentals
    Wedge Weave Fundamentals
    0/12 LEFT  

    Instructor: Connie Lippert


    Skill Level: Intermediate; must be able to warp your own loom.


    Description:

    In contrast to most weaves, which are woven on a plan horizontal to the loom, wedge weave is woven on the diagonal. This results in a weft-faced weaving with many distinctive characteristics and exciting design potential. You will work on your own prewarped loom to explore wedge weave through hands-on experience as well as with detailed handouts and images.


    Materials Fee: $6 for handouts, chipboard loom materials, plastic needle, yarn.


    The materials fee is paid directly to the instructor during class.


    Students to Bring: A table, floor, or tapestry loom warped in plain weave at 6 EPI with 8/4 linen at 594 yards / pound* (or other warp yarn of similar weight may be substituted); a few extra yards of warp yarn; warp should be 12" wide and approximately one yard long; approximately one pound wool weft in several colors but one weight, ranging from 260 to 350 yards / pound; six 1/8" dowels several inches longer than the width of your warp, if using a table or floor loom, heavy beating fork, flat shuttles six to ten inches long, scissors (for both fiber and paper), ruler, pencil, tapestry needle.


    *Students in workshops often have small Mirror or other type of tapestry looms. These are completely suitable, but should be warped with finer warps and use finer wefts. If experienced on these looms, the sett and weight of yarn normally used for tapestry will work fine. If unsure of sett and weight, I suggest 16/6 linen (this is expensive, so a substitution at a similar yards / pound is acceptable, such as 8/3 linen. Lunatic Fringe has a hemp or seine twine that could be substituted) at 800 yards / pound st at 8 EPI for warp and wool for weft at approximately 640 yards / pound.

    Dish Towel Exchange
    Dish Towel Exchange
     

    This is a fun and great way to push yourself to try something (fiber or structure) new. It is also a great way to stock your kitchen with beautiful towels.


    The Exchange will take place at the 2020 Conference at Lake Yale.


    The registration deadline for the exchange is January 1, 2020 so that everyone will know how many samples to plan on weaving and will have adequate time to finish the project before Conference.


    Requirements:

    Appropriate material absorbent to dry dishes, e.g. cotton, linen, cottolin

    Approximate finished size: 16 to 24 inches wide and 26 to 34 inches long

    Hand hemmed

    Three towels to exchange

    One project sheet with woven sample at least 4" square for each exchange participant

    2020 is a great year! The Roaring Twenties here we come. The Fashion Show will have music and Flapper hair pieces. Get ready to strut your stuff!


    NOTE: You are able to participate in the Fashion Show, even if you do not register for it now. However, it helps us plan our logistics if we have an idea how many people to expect.

    You must be a member of FTWG to enter in the Fiber Exhibit.


    Each member may enter up to 4 pieces in the Fiber Exhibit. Each winner receives two ribbons -- one to display with the item and one to wear.


    Onsite you must complete a form for each item you are entering in the Exhibit.


    You are able to enter items in the Exhibit onsite, even if you did not do so during registration. However, it helps us with our logistics if we have an idea how many items to expect.

    Share Your Craft
    Share Your Craft
     
    Saturday Mar 21, 2020 @  10:00:AM  —  12:30:PM EDT

    For the second year in a row, we will have Share Your Craft on the Saturday of Conference. Share Your Craft consists of short demos, usually about 15 minutes long.


    The primary people who see these demos are those who come up for the day or those doing Stay and Play, as they are scheduled during the times people are in Workshops.


    If you are interested in doing one of these short demos, please check this box. Nancy Reed is organizing Share Your Craft and will contact you to work out the details.
