Kurs: Divide & Unite - Weaving multiple layers | Esther Van Schuylenbergh, BL | Textiles Zentrum Haslach
During this workshop we will work on double beam handlooms with various materials in warp and weft. Construction-wise, we will learn different ways of dividing warp and weft in multiple layers and densities, allowing materials to meet and blend in certain areas of the fabric. From a technical perspective but in an experimental and spontaneous way, we will explore the potential of combining materials with different properties in order to create fabrics with interesting structures and graphic patterns.
