Kiki Dembrow will teach students how to use pick and pick to weave vertical and diagonal raised outlines for geometric and non-geometric designs. This technique can also be used to create interesting color patterns and gradations. Class discussion includes color choices, design options and tips for planning a cartoon. Students will weave a sampler that can serve as a guide for the techniques. This class is not suitable for beginning weavers. Maximum class size is 8.
About the Instructor:
Kiki Dembrow became a weaver after teaching French and English for non-native speakers for 30 years. She enjoyed the challenge of creating bridges between people of different languages and cultures, but always harbored a desire to create visual images. She began weaving at Damascus Fiber Arts School in 2005, learning from Audrey Moore and Terry Olson, but she has also taken workshops with Archie Brennan, Susan Martin Maffei, Sarah Swett, and others, including a workshop in Aubusson, France. She has woven and taught Raised Outline Pick and Pick since 2017. Kiki is a member of the American Tapestry Alliance, a founding member of the Willamette Tapestry Artists, and currently serves as President of Damascus Fiber Arts School.
