22jul10:00 am4:00 pmSusan Raber Bray: Natural Materials Weaving Workshop10:00 am - 4:00 pm Edgewater Gallery at Middlebury Falls

Event Details

Rediscover the natural world by learning to weave with local found materials such as: weeping willow branches, grasses, stems of flowers, stalks of phragmites, cattails, queen ann’s lace, tree and shrub prunings, and any stalk you can find in your garden, or fields!

Throughout human history and in all cultures people have created shelters, clothing, storage vessels and more using the local materials around them. Variations in cultural traditions and available plants have given rise to a rich diversity of forms.

Focus during this workshop will be on making 2-dimensional pieces such as wall hangings, place mats, table runners, floor mats, and window shades. You will be using a simple loom, provided by Susan.

If possible please collect materials to bring to the workshop. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring a pair of garden gloves, clippers and duct tape.

Come join Susan and become more aware of our environment
as a source of materials, inspiration, and inquiry!

Cost is $150 for the 1-day work shop and includes 5 hours of instruction plus 1 hour break with a catered lunch. Call Edgewater at the Falls at 802.458.0098 for more information or to register.
