Want to try weaving, but find it intimidating? Are you stuck on a project or want to try new things, but don’t know where to start? Sydney Sogol will talk about various ways to approach weaving and do live demos on small looms to show how you can take on this ancient craft with confidence.
This workshop is appropriate for those who have never woven to advanced beginners to weavers with experience who are looking for alternative ways of approaching weaving.
Instructor: Sydney Sogol
Sydney Sogol is a fiber artist who grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She has been weaving for over 15 years and creates exquisite luxury wearable art and woven painting. Each piece is created to pay tribute to a single creature’s unique beauty and story. She hand paints and dyes yarn, that mimics the gorgeous colors found in birds and ocean creatures. Sogol then combines these colors with the complex, original patterns she designs to create stunning accessories. She primarily works with Tencel, an eco-friendly natural yarn that is manufactured by reusing all water and only non-toxic chemicals.
Sogol has her BA in Art focused on weaving and her MFA in textiles design focused on weaving. Sydney has been teaching weaving and fiber arts publicly and privately since 2012. She loves to share her knowledge, and wants to instill students with the confidence to keep going on their weaving journey.
