How does a story come together? What are the nuances and layers of a path through the woods? How were your pants made? These questions, alongside many more that are generated in the process, will form the explorations of this domain. Using simple tools and big ideas, we will fashion our own looms, weaving together an existence and understanding of cloth production amidst avid experimentation with technique. We will look at weaving traditions from all over the globe, try out back strap weaving, look at modern technological advancements and find impetus to explore in the work artists and makers exploring the wide world of weaving.
