2-Day Workshop with Christine Mauersberger
Saturday – Sunday Nov 18-19, 2023, 9am-4pm
Join visiting artist, Christine Mauersberger to learn how to weave without a loom using colored papers, found rocks, small flat objects and even your own photos. Do you remember weaving colored paper strips in grade school? It was simple and fun. You do not need to know how to weave but you will soon understand the technique and be on your way to hours of fun with simple tools. You will bring your own photograph(s) no larger than 8.5” x 11” ready to cut them into strips for weaving. Duplicate copies of your photograph can be used for making interesting woven compositions. Usually a photograph that is printed on 8 ½”x 11” paper is large enough. If needed, use an online service to have your photographs printed. For example, Staples, Walmart, Shutterfly, and mpix to name just a few. You will cut paper using an exacto knife and a ruler. A Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and a Mac laptop with appropriate software will be available to use to accurately cut your papers.
