This workshop is an exploration of soft materials and basketry methods used to make fabric from fibers. Topics include making cordage from various materials, twining and knotless netting. We will work with a variety of things to make cordage, then use that cordage to make a fabric-like structure. We’ll use plant material (a variety), fabric scraps, hemp twine, waxed linen, threads and strings, plastic bags and whatever else you’d like to try to turn into cordage. Once we have made a bit of cordage we will explore ways to turn that string into fabric and structure. Some materials will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring anything they’d like to use. Natural materials to gather and dry include dandelion stems (look for very long ones) daffodil stems and leaves, daylily leaves, iris leaves, long grasses. Materials should be dried before use.
