|Intermediate fiber students will learn more complex stitches and stitch variations used in both historic and contemporary fiber designs. Together, the class will explore traditional Navajo, Guatemalan, Peruvian, Mexican and Moroccan designs, with an emphasis on how many of these stitches were used in different cultures. Students will experiment with modern points of view and fresh color stories to produce four woven wall hangings that each contain beautiful samples of the intermediate techniques learned. Students should already be comfortable performing basic weaving skills on their own, including warping their loom, plain weave, rya knots and soumak. Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving is encouraged before taking this course.
