The Art of Reuse: Interwoven Weaving

December 10, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

In this weaving workshop hosted and lead by Artist Melissa Knight, we will weave on embroidery hoops and small looms that are made from matte board.

In this workshop we will use some basic weaving techniques and learn how to make looms from reclaimed items including cardboard and embroidery hoops. In addition to original hand made batik fabric , yarn and wool will also be available for participants to weave and experiment with. The artist will also bring a larger loom for participants to add to a community weaving artwork.

About Melissa Knight and Batik by Design:

In my art I use Batik (a wax-dye resist process) to create color and shapes. I enjoy the elements of surprise in dyeing fabric, the many layers and vibrant colors. While mostly a collage artist, in recent years I have also been weaving with batik fabric.

 I facilitate collage and weaving workshops with children and adults at events including Maker Faire, local schools and community centers. Space is provided with intention to create art, nurture community and to show that the possibilities are virtually limitless. In these workshops, participants are invited to create an individual artwork and contribute to a community artwork. I call my weaving workshops Interwoven. The woven artworks are a visual representation of connection and interconnection of community
