Join us for An Introduction to Weaving with Silk
A Presentation by Joan Namkoong
The most luxurious of fibers, silk can be a weaver’s best friend when you’re thinking about scarves, shawls and fabric for clothing. There’s lustrous, silky silk and nubby, textural silk and a variety of sizes to use in hand weaving. Learn about silk and its properties, how to handle it and use it on your loom – it’s easier than you think! A two hour lecture class, no weaving experience required.
Joan Namkoong is a 30 year plus weaver who lives on the Big Island. She weaves and sells functional textiles like scarves, shawls, towels, rugs, runners and yardage for household use. Silk is her favorite thread followed by cotton. Plain weave is used most of the time on her 8- shaft Gilmore loom. She also uses a drawloom to weave complex images and patterns.
