Weaving demonstrations

Starting April 2nd, join us for demonstrations by local weavers Jasmine Cull and Sarah Owen. Demonstrations will take place in the Marion McCain Atlantic Gallery, in connection with the exhibition Charlotte Glencross: The Fabric of her Life. Demonstrations happen daily Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 11 AM – 1 PM, and from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM. There is no cost for these demonstrations (other than Gallery admission).

During her residency, Jasmine Cull will demonstrate the various stages of making cloth on a floor loom.  These stages include winding threads on a warping mill, dressing the loom and finishing the ends on the fabric.  She will also be working on a variety of other fibre techniques, which may include coiled basketry, knitting, or felt work.

Sarah Owen will be demonstrating tapestry weaving techniques and hand spinning. Tapestry weaving will be on an upright frame loom, as opposed to the more familiar floor loom, and some of the handspun fibers from the demonstrations may find its way into the image. There will be a smaller hand held loom available if visitors would like to try their hand at a few passes through the warp threads.
