Workshop Overview

In this workshop participants will explore warping the loom and basic weaving techniques, as well as tapestry and enhancement techniques. Participants will learn about color and its application in weaving. Learning about different threads and which are appropriate to what techniques will be part of the exploration. We will also learn some finishing techniques.

About the Instructor(s)

Having grown up around the sculptures of her father Roy Setziol, it is not surprising that Monica Setziol-Phillips decided to investigate the medium. It drew her in, and she has now been carving for over 35 years. The character and feel of the wood continue to excite her. Developing the relationship between tool, wood and imagination informs the work. She looks forward to sharing what she has learned with her students and feels she learns from them as well. Her own work is mostly abstract, as she understands that approach best and finds it most meaningful.

Monica seeks to enable students to learn from the wood and the tools. Each wood has its own character, its own beauty and difficulty. Students explore these connections and focus on learning techniques to bring wood, tools and skills together. Focus is also on nourishing and developing each student's unique creative spirit.
