Inspired by the iconic fiber assemblages of artists Judith Scott, Sheila Hicks and Eva Hesse, participants, through shared dialogue, immersive exploration and a stream-of-consciousness process of winding, stretching, weaving, knotting, tying and twisting fiber materials, will create personalized three-dimensional “Fiber Forms”. Students will learn to warp a circular repurposed metal coat hanger and, after choosing various strips of colorful recycled fabrics, will weave whimsical Circular Wall Weavings.
