Meanderings – An Adventure in Freeform Right-Angle Weave
In this class, we will meander through the realm of freeform right-angle weave Fairchild-style. Along the way, you will learn several strategies for adding visual and tactile texture as you experiment with technical devices guaranteed to increase the ‘wow-impact’ of your work. The class project will be a small freeform piece suitable for showcasing as a pendant or a brooch.
Students must be comfortable with regular right-angle weave.
