Kathrin Weber Weaving Workshop – April 17-19, 2018

Members had a wonderful time at Kathrin Weber’s weaving workshop this week. They learned how to warp a loom with multiple warps front to back using Kathrin Weber’s tried and true method. Each day started with a little lecture where she showed examples of what can be done with her hand painted warps. She encourages people to use disparate colors because that is what makes many of the warps ‘pop’.

February 15, 2018: Dancing Threads: Indonesian Textiles with Margaret & Curtis Clarkson

While schoolteachers in Indonesia, Margaret and Curtis Clemson fell in love with Indonesian textiles.  They began learning about, and collecting, the textiles, traveling to different islands to acquire pieces employing specific textile techniques. Now they are prominent collectors and vendors of Indonesian textiles, with their own company called, “Dancing Threads.“ Each year, they travel from their New Mexico home to San Francisco for the Tribal and Textile Arts Show, where they exhibit and sell pieces from their collection.  The Clemsons have agreed to stay on for a few days after the show to bring a part of their collection to Black Sheep and to tell us about it. You will be amazed!
