webinar with Karen Donde

 

 

Principles and elements of design that guide all artists also apply to handwoven textiles. However the range of products that can be created by interlacing two sets of threads is so diverse that weavers sometimes shy away from designing on their own in favor of the tried and true. They needn’t.

 

Karen Donde designs handwoven textiles for sale, commission and exhibit. In this web seminar she will share historical perspectives on the development of modern hand weaving, design theories from a few of her personal heroes and examples of how to apply these theories and principles to your weaving.

 

She’ll also teach you a warm-up exercise to get the ideas flowing and demonstrate how to take inspiration from any stage in the design process.

This was the content I expected in the first session. There were some good hints and links, but still mostly at the beginner level. I expected a lot more from the advertising for these webinars.
