welcome to INTERWOVEN :: make : thread : craft : art
“INTERWOVEN :: make : thread : craft : art” is a textile-based online course that will guide students in four techniques over four weeks :: February 4-March 1, 2013
Each week will focus on a different textile project:
week 1 :: crochet
week 2 :: soft sculpture
week 3 :: embroidery
week 4 :: mini quilt
Each week will have daily posts:
day 1 :: complete step-by-step tutorial to learn the technique
day 2 :: an inspirational post offering other artists/crafters using this technique in exciting ways
day 3 :: descriptions/photos of possibilities for altering this technique for future use
day 4 :: an exclusive interview with a professional artist using this technique in their work.
day 5 :: suggestions for further exploration including links to materials, tools, resources, and other studio tips.
The private website will be available all day, every day, from the first day of class on February 4 through April 30—this way you can enjoy the information at your own speed after the course has finished on March 1.
In addition to the private online course, participants will also have access to an INTEWOVEN Facebook page and a private Flickr group where they can post their own projects and receive weekly feedback from the instructors. [Everyone who posts will receive feedback from one of the instructors on at least one image that they present.]
The course is designed with the beginner crafter and the experienced artist in mind. It aims to offer everyone a supportive creative community, daily inspired prompts, thorough tutorials, personal feedback, insider tips for tools & resources, and inspiration to nail the basics AND take these projects to the next level.
Artists Lisa Solomon and Katrina Rodabaugh met through their studio blogs several years ago and have been friends on and off-line ever since. They share a love of colorful thread, beautiful fabrics, and using traditional crafting techniques to make contemporary art.
