Passcode: 025727

Connie Diamant will explain how Free-weaving (referred to as "Saori-style" or "Intuitive" weaving by some) creates room to explore colors and the role of textures in weaving. Free-weaving encourages one to experiment, mixing different materials and colors, skipping dents and doubling threads—all without fear. Conveniently, this playful weaving style has no rules so there are no mistakes, except perhaps happy accidents. Then you can bring this knowledge back to traditional weaving or incorporate a mixture of Free-weaving into your favorite pattern to expand your repertoire. Connie will share over 20 years of practicing and teaching weaving and show you clothing she's made from her woven cloth that has incorporated the principles of Free-weaving using unusual fibers and bits and pieces of things. This presentation will be entirely via zoom.

Connie Diamant brings over 20 years of traditional weaving experience along with Saori intensive training with Mihoko Wakabayashi of Worcester, Massachusetts and workshops and classes with Cheryl Dunworth of Weavin' Place ~Saori Style (Folsom, Louisiana). In presentations and workshops she brings a passion and enthusiasm to introducing Free-weaving and sharing this unique weaving experience. Her work has been exhibited at the Hylton Performing Arts Center of George Mason University (Fairfax, Virginia) and Northern Virginia Community College, Manassas Campus' annual juried art show. She teaches weaving in northern Virginia.
