Introduction to Looped Forms
In this intensive workshop, students will learn the basics of looped forms. Techniques introduced will cover basic knitting, crochet and coiling, techniques that have survived nearly two millennia. We will discuss how line can transform into form, and the metaphors this touches upon. The goal is not to become an expert in the technique, but rather to experiment with material and concept. We will look at historical examples as well as current issues to inspire our investigations. All materials are welcome, for anything that can begin as pliable line can end as form using looped structures.
