Weaving Words part 2

Inspired in the words of the famous Argentine historian, Ruth Corcuera, I created this course.

“Thousands of years ago, when only the voice recorded small and big events of every day life, women would cover their newborn child in a wrap. In this we see a space created between the mother´s womb and the world outside. We believe textiles were born from such gestures, within the realm of feelings and from a women´s view: to protect, to give warmth and to sustain life. In time, textile art will be the means to tell us through colors and designs that the world can be read through symbols, as in a written text“

This didn’t happen only in great American cultures but all around the world in all civilizations Inspired in traditional textiles we will try to rescue their weaving technique, designs, graphics, motifs and color palettes. We will search for the color scheme, predominant & complimentary colors and accents. Study their designs, the character of line and drawings, the texture and pattern in order to mingle and blend calligraphy with the textile arts. With this knowledge we will design alphabets that will resemble our textiles. It’s my intention to share with you my own experimentations and findings and hope you will find new solutions to your calligraphic compositions from this new perspective. We will add stitches and even make books with the use of the sewing machine. So let´s start weaving!
