imageDianne Totten, a weaver for 30 years and teacher for fifteen, uses a variation of handwoven shibori to produce what she calls “crimp cloth” to create one-of-a-kind garments with the heat-set fabric.

3-day workshop “Crimp and Create”

This is an on-loom workshop taking fiber in a new direction by creating “crimp cloth.” Using a variation of woven shibori for both warp and weft, learn to create fabric with permanently crimped designs that hold their memory even when washed. Participants will draft, weave, and crimp their samples in class to discover the endless possibilities. Learn how the fabric can be used for entire garments as well as for permanent pleating to replace knitted ribbing for a sweater or to add a knit look to the collar area of a jacket. The three-day workshop includes garment design and sewing instruction. No dyeing involved. Advanced beginner and beyond.
