Join Saoirse Byrne in learning to twine loved fabrics into beautiful lengths of cord. Cordage is a simple and repetitive process that is accessible even to those who would not consider themself artistic and lends itself to conversation and contemplation. Come away with a necklace for yourself or as a gift and an understanding of this ancient process.
Saoirse Byrne is an artist, designer and craftsperson based in Boonville, California. For over a decade she has been exploring the form of cordage in jewelry, accessories, soft furnishings, and custom commissions. Saoirse trained as a fashion designer at Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with an MBA in Sustainability from Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco among the pioneering cohort. Her exploration of cordage began with learning to twist wild harvested plants with Tamara Wilder. Curious, she applied the process to the abundance of materials in her studio and life. The threadbare handkerchief that once belonged to her great grandmother was precious but altogether unusable. As cordage it became strong, a loving reminder of family connections- a necklace that could be worn and a process that could be shared.
