ORIGAMI BAGS with Judith Shangold

Start with a rectangle of fabric, fold it this way and that, sew 2 seams – voila, you have a bag. Or a pillow. We will play with the concept using graph paper models and color pencils to explore design possibilities.

Please bring color pencils and paper scissors.

Judith is a weaver and designer who mostly weaves on a rigid-heddle loom. Her book Weave • Knit • Wear explores clothing ideas that require little cutting and sewing. Always looking for new ideas of what to weave, she discovered a knitted origami bag – also called a bento bag – online and proceeded to try weaving one. She will bring her samples to the workshop.

A group invitational, The New Textiles: Transformed will include works showcasing a variety of unique techniques and unlikely materials that mirror the look of textiles and explore the definition of what a textile truly is. This exhibition will transform the possibilities of textile art through textural forms and media. Textiles can spring from unlikely sources including paper, glass, metal, silicone and plastics. The New Textiles celebrates the bold sculptural forms of baskets, the graphic imagery of tapestries and all surfaces that are embellished both narrative and abstract.
