Marilyn Romatka – Uzbek Ikat

December 2020 Day & Evening Program

 

Marilyn has a passion for folk art. She has a long history of teaching spinning, weaving, and other ethnic crafts to both children and adults throughout the Pacific Northwest and at national crafting conferences.

Her passion is to kindle the love for the beauty that we can create with just our hands and a few simple tools.

A new website for streaming of her classes is now live. Visit Taproot Video a co-operative of national instructors.

• Uzbek Ikat: The Personal Saga of an Exceptional Cloth
Experience the exotic in your own hometown; travel to Central Asia in this multi-media presentation. We have all seen Uzbek Ikat on the runway in New York and London, now travel back to Uzbekistan with Marilyn to watch the process of its production. Each thread manipulated, dyed, and woven into exquisite cloth–truly hand-crafted.

• The Handicrafts of Gujarat
Travel to India in this multi-media presentation. We weavers and crafters will delight in items crafted by the human hand and the traditional crafts found in the state of Gujarat are a wealthy inheritance all makers can enjoy. Weaving techniques, pit looms, silk, and camel throughout!
