SCHG Presents in January
JANUARY 12 & 13, 2019
ABOUT Jannie Taylor: Jannie’s fascination with textiles and handweaving began in the heady 1970’s and has only increased in the intervening years. From the beginning “I have been intrigued with the interplay of color, structure and fiber available only to the handweaver.…My philosophy as a teacher is to meet each student at their own level and help them achieve their goals in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere…to provide weavers with the tools they need to turn their ideas into woven reality.”
MORNING PROGRAM: January 12 Spinning & Weaving a High Fiber Lifestyle The world is full of an amazing range of fiber and people around the globe have always put what is at hand to use for a myriad of purposes. Learn about the origin and properties of a wide variety of fibers that come from sheep to sheepdog; flax to fique; and silica to carbon, a PowerPoint presentation with over 100 samples of animal, vegetable and mineral fibers.
