Beginning Weaving: Shape + Texture
Organized by: Incline Gallery
Instructor: Eden V. Evans
When: Saturday May 6, 2017 // 1-3pm
Where: Incline Gallery @ 766 Valencia Street, San Francisco CA
Please join us for a beginner’s weaving class to help fundraise for Bay Area textiles artist, Eden V. Evans.
About the Class: In this beginning level class, students will learn the basics of weaving and will be encouraged to experiment beyond fundamentals. Each student will warp, weave, and finish a small project during class. Emphasizing shape and texture, we will utilize traditional knots and tapestry techniques as options for constructing weft shots.
It’s going to be a blast!
There will be snacks, drinks, tunes and plenty of fun. All while supporting the arts in The Bay!
No experience necessary.
Class + Materials fee: Please make a minimum donation of $65 via Venmo @edenvevans with the subject line “Weaving Workshop/Fundraiser”. We will send you a message confirmation upon receipt of your donation.
What we are fundraising for: Eden is a talented emerging artist born and raised in San Diego, Eden relocated to the Bay Area in 2013 to complete her undergraduate degree at San Francisco State University.
Eden’s work focuses heavily on materiality, process, and visual associations to illicit an intimate correspondence that is both personally individual and universal. The majority of her work involves actively seeking out discarded objects and textiles to edit and incorporate into her work. Eden recognizes that these objects have an inherent history that is attached to where they came from, who used them, and how they were used. In turn these ordinary objects become intermediaries to the human experience. Eden currently lives and works in Berkeley and Oakland where she is a Studio Assistant Manager at Freia Fibers.
Eden will be having her solo exhibition, Inside Spaces, at Incline Gallery from May 4-13. Join us for the opening reception, May 4 from 6-9pm!
