Members had a wonderful time at Kathrin Weber’s weaving workshop this week. They learned how to warp a loom with multiple warps front to back using Kathrin Weber’s tried and true method. Each day started with a little lecture where she showed examples of what can be done with her hand painted warps. She encourages people to use disparate colors because that is what makes many of the warps ‘pop’.
Sheng Lor, HopeCRAFT’s master weaver, has been weaving with individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities for five years. She discusses the role that weaving plays in the lives of people with special needs and how weaving can be adapted to a variety of needs, and shares some of her favorite woven works by individuals with developmental disabilities.
