Join us February 13, 2019 for “My Journey to Discovery; using handmade paper as textile” by Julie McLaughlin. Julie has been making paper and exploring its sculptural possibilities since the early 90’s and has been making large sheets from Kozo fibers for the last 14 years. Her interest in wearable paper garments subconsciously began over 50 years ago when she wore her first paper dress (popular in the 60’s) and she continues today inpushing the boundaries between paper and textiles.

Oh Bag It!
Trudy Johnson will lead a sewing workshop constructing a small cosmetic/tool bag and a larger market bag on January 26 & 27, 2019 from 9am-4pm. Starting with the cosmetic bag, you will learn about appropriate fabrics (handwoven or commercial), interfacing materials, how to line the bag and put in a zipper. For the larger bag, you will incorporate the skills learned earlier and customize with pockets, straps, trim, etc.
Equipment required: sewing machine & usual sewing supplies (scissors, needles, pins or clips). Participants will be advised of materials they should bring including fabric, thread, batting, fabric stiffener, ornaments if desired (buttons, decorative threads, woven bands like kumihimo and/or inkle).
Here’s a chance to use some of your handwoven odds and ends (maybe a sampler from a previous workshop) or weave something specifically for the workshop.
