Ventura County Handweavers and Spinners Guild Monthly Meeting and Program/Workshop

General Meeting 9am followed by free Program and afternoon Workshop (fee) presented by Marilyn Romatka. Experience the exotic in your own home town; 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. Afternoon Workshop 1pm-4pm: Members $45. Non-Members $55 Viking Knitting: Trichinopoly on a Dowel Also called “Viking Chain Netting” and “Viking Weaving”, this jewelry technique is done with neither knitting needles nor a loom, but instead with thin wire on a stick! Examples of these chains have been found in various archeological sites in Scandinavia dating back to the 8th century A.D. This technique can be used to make necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The chain looks exquisite and complicated, but the process is simple and straightforward. This is a great portable handicraft you can do on the bus or plane. Materials Fee $38.00 ordered from Marilyn. The product of this class may be viewed at www.taprootfolkarts.com
