Barbara Burns Masterclass
Mini Corset, Pulled Warp Workshop: A New Twist On Tight Lacing with Barbara Burns
In this two day workshop students will weave a design supplied by the instructor, created specifically for weaving a three dimensional tapestry in the form of a mini-corset.
Participants can expect to weave a partial, mini-corset, and learn the techniques to successfully pull warps to shape the corset. They will leave the workshop with an understanding of all the steps to develop and create a full size, wearable or mini-corset to specific dimensions. We will also discuss how this process relates to creating other pulled warp shapes. The instructor works closely with students in class providing individual guidance along with demonstrations.
Studio activities will be supported by a presentation by Barbara of her experiences with designing and weaving corsets.
Students will be expected to arrive with a pre-warped loom and suggested weft. The instructor will supply detailed directions prior to the workshop for warping, printing the supplied cartoon and creating spacers. Prior to the workshop they will have access to the instructor to answer any questions based on the “homework”.
**This is not a beginning class. Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques and know how to warp their tapestry loom.
