MORNING PROGRAM 10:30 - NOON: WANDA MATJAS "FROM THE ANCIENT ART OF COILING TO THE ARTISTIC DESIGNS OF TODAY"
"My first work began from a ball of Silk Yarn, and an interest in the Silk Worm process. For centuries Coiling has been used for practical purposes. Why not use this technique as Wearable Art?" Wanda Matjas. The Egyptians, Native Americans, Africans and Asians used the ancient technique of Coiling for making baskets. Wanda has entwined the coiling technique with her love of silk and other fibers to create her fabulous necklaces. Her interest in silk yarn, lead her to find out about the Silk Worm Story. In her thirst for knowledge, she traveled to China to a visit Silk Factory.
THIS MONTH'S WORKSHOP: AUG 21 (ONE DAY)
WANDA MATJAS - DESIGNED COILED NECKLACE WITH A THEMEUsing the ancient technique of COILING, with modern day supplies, I will teach you how to make your own Treasure Necklace. COILING is a weaving process, which involves covering a flexible core with fibers and building a form row upon row. The Egyptians, Native Americans, Africans and Asians used this technique for making baskets. Wanda has adapted this technique using single cords for creating necklaces. No kit fee
