Ecology Center Event

Cardboard Weaving With Scraps

Sunday | February 14, 2021 | 2:00 pm — 3:00 pm

Online Event

 

Inspired by handcrafts of earlier times, artist/artisan, Judith Schonebaum, will share the technique of cardboard weaving. In this hands-on virtual workshop, Judith will show you, step by step, how to use scrap textiles and plastic bags to create a small pouch from beginning to end. Once you understand the technique, you will be able to adapt it to larger projects of your own design – purses, table mats, wall art, etc….

While working with Judith on your own project, she will show samples reflecting her lifelong interest in folk arts, and the importance of seeing scraps as the basis for making functional and beautiful items from past-use textiles, plastics and natural materials that would otherwise be thrown away.

Working in the time-honored tradition of a “sewing circle”, you will have the opportunity to share ideas and collaborate with other participants in a friendly and supportive group atmosphere. The pieces produced may be for personal use, gift-giving and/or even cooperative marketing – inspiring the possibilities of being less focused on new, disposable merchandise, and more on the need and gratification of being more actively conscious of our environment.

Materials list will be provided upon registration and printable diagrams during the class.
