SF Weaving Workshop April 4-5 2019

  
Loom and Shuttle Guild — presents
Wendy Garrity, Kushutara.  April 4 & 5, 2019 Workshop. In this workshop, Wendy Garrity will introduce students to sapma and thrima, the supplementary weft techniques used to create kushutara, the sumptuous single-faced brocade used for women’s festival dresses in Bhutan. Participants will explore traditional Bhutanese motifs and begin to combine the 5 basic stitches to weave these motifs and to experiment with their own designs. Wendy learned from and wove alongside master weavers during a year living in Bhutan, and shares techniques not documented in the few books published on Bhutanese textiles. She has adapted the techniques executed on the Bhutanese backstrap loom to the shaft loom in order to share them with western weavers. Participants will have the opportunity to examine samples of Bhutanese kushutara cloth and learn to identify how different patterns are created, to enable them to continue their own explorations after the workshop.  Participants will also have the opportunity to converse with Wendy about her experiences living in Bhutan, attending festivals, teaching in schools, weaving alongside locals, and traveling the country to research and learn the weaving techniques.
Although kushutara is woven in Bhutan with a pickup stick and fine silk yarns, participants will learn using more substantial yarn that can be manipulated with the fingers, increasing the ground we can cover during this workshop.   $175 + $30 materials fee.  Non-members $200.00 + $30.00 material fee.  Limited to 12 participants.  Workshop to be held in our regular meeting space at St. John’s UCC.  Full fee required to required to reserve a space.  Contact Lucinda at sunsetsf(at)hotmail.com
