Textural Weaving on Plastic Fencing

Vicki Assegued
9:00 - 4:30
Tue April 18

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

We’ll use plastic fencing material as the foundation for our super textural weaving. The fencing offers many options for creating fabulous effects, both with the bottom fringe and with the whole body of the piece, allowing for interesting and dynamic outcomes. We’ll use knotting, wrapping, tying, sewing, coiling and twisting of our materials to build your exciting and stunning piece to hang on the wall. This is a great project for incorporating all kinds of pieces and parts you may already have on hand, such as fabric scraps, jewelry parts, shells, beads, unfinished project parts, yarn, and other embellishments. No weaving experience is necessary, and all levels are most welcome.

Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:
