May 2022 Program – Al Canner – Cavandoli Weaving, Macramé & Knotting

May 9 @ 10:00 am - May 10 @ 7:00 pm

Al Canner – Cavandoli Weaving, Macramé & Knotting

Handweavers Guild of Boulder
May 2022 Day & Evening Program

 

Al Canner began creating macramé works, both wall-hanging and sculptural, in the 1970s. Since his retirement from professional pursuits in 2013, he has devoted much of his energy to knotting, usually producing five or six works each year. His pieces have been shown at local, national, and international juried exhibits.

Beyond Plant Hangers and Owls: Knotting in Three Dimensions

Al will discuss the kind of knotting that he does (known alternately as Cavandoli weaving/knotting/macramé) and show selected pieces from his body of work, highlighting techniques that he has developed over the years and demonstrating the result of innovative approaches, such as juxtaposing cords of significantly different gauge.

The Power of the Double Half-Hitch

Building upon the themes introduced in the morning talk to the Guild, Al will delve into the various techniques that he has developed—or, in some cases, stumbled upon—in his knotting journey. Included will be various techniques for mounting cord and beginning a work, for creating bulges and indentations, for fashioning corners and curves, and for finishing.
