|as always, I like to dye most of the yarn for our workshop|
This was a risk taking bunch of weavers. I have an approach in my teaching that is quite open ended and can be unnerving for those who fear venturing into uncharted territory. This group took the challenge and even when they found themselves at those scary crossroads (how do I start the eyes??!!, did I weave enough lips??) it didn't take much to push them into a decision.
|Michele tries a 3/4 pose|
|Sherry creates a woman with style and class|
|Dawn tackles glasses and white hair...and to think she was nervous about weaving people|
|and Emily is a rug hooker who had never tried tapestry before...|
What I love about these workshops is the individuality; we can't help but create different personalities. Naming our new friends became an earnest occupation among the group. On the last day these new people had a life of their own and almost wove themselves.
I'm so proud.
Thanks Nancy, a great space to hold a workshop!
