Black Sheep Handweavers Guild

Black Sheep Handweavers Guild has a few openings in an upcoming workshop.

Black Sheep Handweavers Guild will be a offering a workshop "Exploring the Design Process" with Tien Chiu, Oct. 20-21, 2012, in Redwood City, CA.  This workshop is aimed at weavers and bringing your own warped loom is required. This is the trial run of the  workshop that Tien is developing.
Topics covered include:
    Exploring techniques and materials to inspire ideas
    Creating a mood board/idea board to collect your thoughts
    Translating ideas into design
    Designing samples to test your design ideas/questions
    Creating and evaluating samples

Because this workshop is about the design process, you should not expect to leave with a completed project; instead, you should expect to leave with a completed design for a new project, and an expanded understanding of design tools and process.
