"KNOTS & NETS” : a Two day Workshop by Pat Hickman
Friday-Saturday, January 12-13, 2018
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM with 1 hour lunch break

This workshop will encourage participants to explore visual ideas suggested through openwork textile structures--that of knotted netting and knotless netting. Reserving space for air and the importance of what is “not there” will be built into conceptually based quick studies and studio projects.The workshop will be an experience in discovery, questioning, and ongoing ways of working. No previous knowledge of these textile structures is required, just a willingness to explore and learn.

To Bring:
Something that for you reflects memory and/or time or place
Netting shuttles, 2 different sizes
Waxed Linen, 2 spools (light and dark)
Netting gauge set
T-pins, a large eyed tapestry needle and a curved needle
Straight edged 12" ruler and a wooden tongue depressor or popsicle stick
Notebook, pen and pencil, sharp scissors, etc.
