October 3, 2012 Cone to Clothing, One Weaver’s Journey: with Dianne Totten. Dianne will present a slide presentation of her work over the years, detailing her approach to designing one-of-a-kind garments, filled with tips and tidbits that help make her “visions” materialize. Also included will be her work on the Fabric Forecast Team for “Handwoven” magazine. The presentation will conclude with her current work – “crimp” clothing and what led her to it.
October 4-5, 2012 DIANNE TOTTEN WORKSHOP: CRIMP CLOTH This is an on-loom workshop taking fiber in a new direction by creating “crimp cloth.” Using a variation of woven shibori for both warp and weft, learn to create fabric with permanently crimped designs that hold their memory even when washed. Participants will draft, weave, and crimp their samples in class to discover the endless possibilities. Learn how the fabric can be used for entire garments as well as for permanent pleating to replace knitted ribbing for a sweater or to add a knit look to the collar area of a jacket. No dyeing involved. Skill level: beginner to advanced
Cost of workshop $125.
