Come and join us for this two-session wool cushion cover weaving workshop. This class is for those who want to forgo the labour-intensive loom set up and get right to weaving. We will learn loom anatomy and pattern weaving with two shuttles. Wool Thread will be provided, and pillow forms can be purchased from the instructor for an extra cost.
Living in K’jipuktuk/Halifax Jessie Fraser is a craft oriented visual artist working predominantly in the medium of fibre. Her practice considers how imagery, poetry and hand-woven cloth may be combined, to investigate the affective potential of woven cloth and text in site-sensitive installations. Fraser completed an MFA in 2019 at Alberta University of the Arts in Craft Media. She has participated in multiple residencies and exhibited work in a number of venues throughout Calgary, including group shows at VivianeArt and Stride Gallery. Image, text and textiles, along with photographic and weaving processes are used as sites of intuitive and emotional investigation. Using time as both a process and a material Jessie’s practice is the process of weaving. She weaves not only with thread but also historic narratives and atmospheric feeling.
