Join us for Theo Moorman Inlay Technique with Linda Hee.
In this class the students will learn the inlay technique developed by Theo Moorman using a supplementary tie down warp. They will weave a sampler of six 8" wide x 6" tall sections experimenting with the various effects that can be created with this technique. After completing the class, students should be able to design their own projects using their notes and samplers as reference.
This class is designed for intermediate weavers. Students should know the parts of the loom and how they function and be able to calculate and wind off a warp. The sampler block you create in the class will include:
- 1 solid shape
- An adjacent shape using various weights of yarn
- Transparencies using thin yarns
- 3-D shapes where inlay is haute relief
- Transparencies using different weight yarns
- Color gradation/blending.
We recommend reading Weaving as an Art Form by Theo Moorman.
Supplies are included in the cost of the class. As this is a sampler project, we will be using Hui donated yarn. However, if you want the sampler to be a functional item, please bring new yarn for your project.
What to Bring:
- Colored Pens or Pencils
- Tags will be useful to label your work
Linda has been weaving since 1978 when she was a student at the University of Hawaii in the Fiber Department.
