October 2022 Program Bobbie Irwin – Weaving Iridescence

October 10 - October 11

HGB October 2022 Program – B. Iwrin

Bobbie Irwin – Weaving – There’s no excuse to get bored!

Handweavers Guild of Boulder
October 2022 Day & Evening Program

Bobbie Irwin’s fascination with weaving started in 1973, when a brief magazine article introduced her to inkle weaving. For years she happily worked on her own, using homemade equipment and with only a couple classes, few books, and no other weavers around for inspiration. It wasn’t until she joined a guild in 1982 that she really started learning, and she thanks that guild for gently pushing her in new directions.

Shimmering Colors: The Magic of Iridescence

Fabrics that appear to change color as the light and angle of view change seem almost magical! You don’t need gossamer threads or just plain weave to create iridescence in handwoven fabrics. Learn a variety of color, thread, thread size, and structure options to achieve the effects. The amazing possibilities include analogous colors, multiple colors, layered fabrics, warp- or weft-faced fabrics, and even iridescence in black and white! This talk explores and illustrates many common beliefs, and why there are exceptions to all of them.

Twined Rag Rugs

This technique makes extremely durable and beautiful rugs using fabric for both warp and weft, requiring only common household materials and equipment. Hand-manipulated twining on a simple frame (or even without a frame) produces an astonishing variety of patterns not found in most other rag rugs, and which would be considerably more difficult to weave on a loom. Illustrated with examples from museum collections and embellished by stories of longtime rug twiners, this talk covers the worldwide history of this old folk craft. You, too, can join the twined rag rug revival!
