Weaving Workshop
Design Research

Explorations of weaving in three-dimensions, using a variety of materials, from yarn, to traditional basket-weaving reed, and elastic. Working within a cube, some of these studies are tensile and can’t be separated from their form, the reed, pliable when wet, will dry and become structural. These studies are an initial experiment with deploying material learning, established techniques, and pattern as a mode of teaching design. These exercises may become an exciting way to both teach and practice the art of creative exploration and form making through new/old methods of design thinking, testing, and materiality.
