Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – Sep 30 @ 4:00 pm
Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England

Although Lauran is a contemporary lace maker and will concentrate primarily on contemporary bobbin lace, the techniques, covered in the class, would benefit the traditional lace maker who wishes to make traditional pieces using wire. These techniques can also be used for larger dimensional sculptural pieces although she will cover small-scale jewellery applications. Lauran will explore two important aspects; focusing on the special methods of working with wire will help the student understand the structural integrity inherent to metal and its potential for dimensional design, emphasis on proper tensioning and the technique of working the wire around the pins, in a systematic manner to achieve precise stitches will be covered in detail. Additional she will cover methods for making all those wire ends “disappear”.

Marilyn Moore: WIRE AS FIBRE: AN INTEGRATION OF TECHNIQUE AND INSPIRATION @ The Studio, Go Create! New England
Apr 5 @ 9:30 am – Apr 7 @ 4:00 pm
Marilyn Moore: WIRE AS FIBRE: AN INTEGRATION OF TECHNIQUE AND INSPIRATION @ The Studio, Go Create! New England

Do you like to play with fire? How about combining that adventurous spirit with the experience of working with wire cloth and wire? Experiment with textile techniques and a variety of wires, as well as different meshes of copper, bronze and stainless steel wire cloth. Give yourself the opportunity to play with these new materials and accept the challenge of adding and expanding your fibre vocabulary.

Students will explore this process of inspiration and technique with Marilyn using fine coloured wires, which can be brought from their own stash. Included with the class will be the use of the torch as a tool for preparation of the materials. Wire cloth and wire will be used to create baskets and jewellery to excite the senses. Students may wish to get involved in a large project or produce a number of samples with technique in mind. Twining with fine coloured wires, knitting and crocheting with wire, working with wire cloth, embellishing with beads, and pearls, will make an exciting adventure for students.
