May 12, 2018 · Program + Workshops

INGE DAM is the author of Tablet-Woven Accents for Designer Fabrics: Contemporary Uses for Ancient Techniques. She has taught workshops in the US, Canada, and England, as well as  Convergence and Complex Weavers.  She weaves on a 32-shaft dobby loom and specializes in weaving unique fabrics.  In most of her fabrics she incorporates tablet weaving and other embellishments and she has won many awards for her work.

This program will be a fashion show!  Inge’s variety of garment and shawls will be modeled by participants. The items have been made using many different weaving techniques and have been decorated with various types of embellishments. Six of the garments have been in the Convergence Fashion Show. During the show Inge will explain how each piece was woven and how some of the embellishments on the garments were made. Most of the items have been made with a combination of tablet weaving and loom weaving.
