Online Workshop: Sample is Not a Four-Letter Word!
Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Pacific
SARAH JACKSON Sarah graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, concentration in textile design. A nationally known teacher and textile artist, she conducts workshops for guilds and regional conferences that explore color and design in weaving. In January 2012, she joined Handwoven’s editorial team as a technical editor, and worked as weaving editor from 2015-2017. Currently, she is designing patterns for and organizing virtual weaving workshops (Weave Along with Sarah Jackson) on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SarahJacksonHandwovenDesign/
Sarah’s design process often centers on color as she works within the limitations of the loom to stretch and explore the possibilities of color interaction. At other times she focuses on the combination of structure and fiber, using only one or two colors, to create the desired cloth. Whether designing for the home or one-of-a-kind garments, Sarah’s weaving reflects a passion for marrying structure, fiber, and color to produce cloth that is unique, practical, beautiful, and just right for the intended purpose.
Many weavers skip the sampling stage of the design process and miss the potential of ideas revealed only through sampling. This workshop illustrates two things: Number 1, the valuable role sampling plays in the design process while demonstrating that it can be quick …and fun! And number 2, how sampling yields critical information regarding sett, color, shrinkage rates, weave structure, and finishing options
Who should take this workshop?
This course is primarily designed for all multi-shaft weavers, including rigid heddle. Tapestry weavers may also be interested in the concept of sampling.
Prework: Sarah will send informational handouts to students prior to the workshop and will allow time for questions after the presentation. This workshop is not a hands-on weaving workshop.
