Maiwa Loft: Above the Net Loft, Granville Is. Vancouver BC
Both Kyoko Ueda workshops teach the same technique of machine-stitching gauze materials. In this workshop students will work with nylon tulle to learn techniques that can be used for wall hangings, mobiles, standing sculptures, or other forms.
Through an unusual technique of layering hexagonal mesh tulle, students will discover a new world of sculptural possibility.
Sculptural forms are augmented through choice of mesh colours and the embellishment of the surface with stitch work or small pieces of fabric. Students will appreciate the skill of pre-visualizing three-dimensional effects. Volume, colour, movement, and surface are all elements that the textile artist can use to dictate a new language of expression.
Students will progress through a series of geometric and human forms as they learn techniques and experiment with embellishments. On the second day students will progress toward a final original piece.
