Deborah Kaplan—Unusual Weaving Materials
Weaving can be a lot of things. The possibilities are endless. How do we get to new ones? In this presentation, we will discuss how to look at the world around you with fresh eyes, how to develop habits of creativity and how to refine your own unique design sensibility. We will look at specific examples from the textile department of a London design school and from Debbie's own personal experiences approaching unusual materials. Hopefully, you will come away with a set of tools you can use daily.
