(138) Almost Ikat

2021-Workshops - Tarses_ikat-cropped2Bonnie’s 30 year ikat journey is presented in a dazzling array of images guaranteed to inspire. Be amazed as the complex ancient dyeing/weaving technique (ikat) is transformed from a tedious pre-planning exercise into spontaneous designing directly on the warping board. You will learn all about Bonnie’s “tricks”–Turned Weft Ikat and Almost Ikat–(for those who would rather not do yarn dyeing), which are so accessible that students can easily incorporate them into their weaving repertoire. Students say, “I can do that!”
