Create Your Very Own Tallit (Jewish Prayer Shawl)
2 Day Workshop
Do you have a friend or relative who is about to become bar or bat mitzvah? Or would you like to make a Jewish prayer shawl for yourself or a loved one? We've all seen the traditional white with blue stripes woven tallit, and the painted silk ones from Israel. They are beautiful, but here's your chance to learn how to create a unique and distinctive tallit of your very own, using quilting and surface design techniques. In this class, you will learn how to design and make a tallit in accordance with Talmudic and Rabbinic Law. Create your own design, sew the atarah (name band), and tie the tzitzi (prayer fringes). I will show you everything you need to know in order to complete your very own unique design. All levels of experience are encouraged!
Introduction to Design
2 Day Workshop
In this class, I share my knowledge of design and technique to help participants realize their own ideas. We discuss the principles of composition, color, and texture as used in design. We start by reviewing the basics: line, form, shape, color, composition, negative/positive space, design approaches, and how to analyze what is working and what is not working with a piece. Each student will design and construct a sample wall hanging using techniques taught in class.
1 Day Workshop
Take this fun class to learn the language and theory of color. Knowledge of how colors interact will help enhance your fiber art. No sewing during the workshop, just information and exercises with fabric.
