Art as Inspiration for Weaving

At the request of a nearby weaving guild I developed a class about using favorite artwork and photos as inspiration for weaving designs. This was based on the show that I had at the Artery a few years ago and that was the subject of a Handwoven article. lisa-2This is the publicity photo we used for the show. Our model is wearing my Red Canna (Georgia O’Keefe) chenille shawl and Julia’s felt hat.

Participants in the class brought favorite photos or artwork to use as a basis for designing weaving projects and used…DSC_8455…colored pencils and…DSC_8458rayon chenille for their designs. Here are some of the plans:DSC_8450 DSC_8457 DSC_8453  DSC_8443 DSC_8439 DSC_8435 DSC_8433 DSC_8428Won’t it be fun to see these projects when they are finished?

    This mornings blog brought a huge smile with your portrayed art weaving project. The Red Canna (Georgia O’Keefe) chenille shawl and Julia’s felt hat is so delightful, eye candy! I love your work. Who doesn’t love GOK’S work?
