N.O.W. (New or Occasional Weaver)

 

For 10 pairs, a weaving mentor from the Guild and a new or occasional weaver, the day will be spent exploring basic floor loom weaving techniques on a pre-warped loom with a direct tie-up. Case Galloway, Fiber Program Director at the Southwest School of Art, provided a weaving plan for this one-day event. Nancy Heneghan, Introduction to Weaving class teacher at SSA, will guide the day. A hearty "Thank You" to all of the mentors who volunteered.

Weave in Public Day

 

Knitters have a long history with the very popular Knit in Public Day. Time for a similar event with weaving!

 

We had such a great response to Woven in Time exhibit at the SA Public Library Central Library that the library staff jumped at the chance to host a W.I.P. event at one of the branch libraries. Part demo, part make-and-take event, we have places for demonstrators on three to four types of looms, two to three types of spinning, basket makers and helpers with the small cardboard loom make and take table.

Felted Treasures

Rosanne White

 

Take advantage of our own local treasure, Rosanne White, in making felted pins and ornaments. From tender valentines and singing birds to dreamy southwest landscapes, she has a gorgeous repertoire of examples to inspire us. Rosanne will cover designing specific details in felt, using embroidery to get the idea just right and enhancing the piece with beads. Expect to go home with at least one completed pin, ornament or Valentine and probably more.

Ikat Weaving

Daniel Garver

 

Daniel Garver, currently a resident artist at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, has exhibited  broadly across the United States since his work shifted dramatically from ceramics to textiles. His bold, pattern-heavy work in weaving and drawing explores topics of mathematical sequences, visual perception, and structural systems. This workshop through the Southwest School of Art will focus on ikat in which individual threads are bound, dyed and woven to create intricate nuanced patterns.

Mission Espada

Mission Espada, Natural Dyes and Weaving with Traditional Local Materials

 

Ed Day, docent of Mission Espada, will share the history of spinning, dyeing and weaving at the Mission. Come help maintain the antique loom and learn how fibers were processed in the earliest days of San Antonio. Part of the day will be spent as a demonstration of weaving and spinning for other visitors at the mission.

Workshop fees are based on the minimum number of participants in each  workshop, to include the instructor's fee and facility rental. Instructors may also set a separate supply fee.  If the workshop is canceled, those who have paid will receive a full refund without penalty. Fees above the minimum needed to cover workshop costs go to the Guild general fund. Workshops for the benefit of the Guild, such as archiving, will have their costs paid by the Guild and there will be no cost to participants.

 

Unless otherwise stated, a deposit of 50% of the workshop maximum fee will be required to guarantee a spot in the workshop. This fee is due when you sign up for the workshop. The balance is due no later than the day of the workshop. If a participant cancels more than 14 days in advance of the workshop, the deposit and any additional workshop fees paid, minus a $25 cancellation fee will be refunded. No refunds are allowed within 14 days of the workshop. In case of emergency or illness, refunds will be considered on an individual basis up to 24 hours before the workshop. No-shows will be billed for any unpaid fees based on the full amount of the workshop.

 

Non-members registering for a workshop will be charged the workshop fee plus the annual Guild membership fee in force at the time of the workshop. Membership in any Handweavers Guild is considered to be a member of SAHG for purposes of this policy.
