Description

Weaving is a method of textile production consisting of two distinct sets of yarn – the warp and the weft – which are interlocked to form a stable piece of fabric or cloth. Tapestry is a form of woven textile art traditionally made on a vertical loom, and is made for creative or aesthetic display purposes.

This workshop will introduce participants to the basic techniques of weaving on small tapestry looms. Students will be shown various weaving stitches in order to create their own tapestry creations.

So come and unwind, and spend an evening with us mastering this ancient craft.

About Claudia Husband

I am a practicing visual artist and textile designer trained in printmaking in both Australia and the United States, currently residing in Brisbane, Australia. I completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with the Queensland College of Art in 2012, and attended the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, USA to complete a summer workshop in aluminium plate lithography.

Working initially as an edition printer and workshop presenter in lithographic and intaglio printmaking, I expanded my practice into the world of textile design in early 2014, and have since worked as a textile artist both independently, and collaboratively with local fashion designers.  I have designed the textiles for three consecutive collections with award-winning Australian fashion label Tengdahl, and have seen my designs launched on the runway at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in both 2014 and 2015.  Focusing primarily in print design, I also practice in dyed, woven and spun fibres; and am the primary owner and creator behind Tawny Threads.

I conduct workshops in textiles (indigo dyeing, shibori and tapestry weaving) and printmaking (traditional lithography and introductory intaglio) with Impress Printmakers Studio, Work-Shop Brisbane and independantly with highschools and creative businesses throughout Brisbane.
