Nov 4 - Free Form Weaving

Cheryl PeeblesFree Form Weaving, Cheryl Peebles
Saturday, Nov 4 1pm-5pm
$126, supplies included

Have you been intrigued by the idea of weaving but were intimidated by the formidable mechanics of the floor loom? Freeform or ‘off loom’ tapestry weaving is an exciting technique where anything goes. Using traditional techniques one can be as expressive and unique as the weaver likes. All sorts of textures, colors and yarn sizes are used to create a piece of weaving suited to wall hangings, cushion covers or tote bags. The weaving can be inspired by colors, one's experiences, or the natural environment.  Using a simple frame loom and a wealth of textures we will learn how to set up the loom and plan the design. A variety of techniques will be demonstrated so the weaver will have the knowledge and skills to create geometric shapes and contours. This is an imaginative, forgiving technique that all can master.

No Experience required. All materials and equipment will be provided, the participant is encouraged  to bring along any yarns or fibre they already have that they may want to include in their work.

artspace register now-01Artist Bio: Artist by nature – Fibre Artist by choice. Cheryl has been making art all her life; from making books as a girl, to oil painting as a teen and pottery as a young adult. While in college watercolors came to be her medium of choice. Moving to the Peace Region in the late 70’s Cheryl was introduced to hand spinning and soon after hand weaving. She was hooked and has been working with fibre ever since.  Spinning, weaving, felting and dyeing; Cheryl’s work has been exhibited throughout BC and northern Alberta.

Loving to share knowledge and skills, Cheryl has been teaching both adults and children for more than 30 years. In addition to teaching through her studio and local weavers’ guilds, much of her teaching has been through school districts as a contract teacher. Her biggest pleasure comes from the ‘aha’ moments when her students have mastered new technique.
