A New Twist on Tight Lacing Masterclass

A New Twist on Tight Lacing Masterclass

Code: M007

Price per place: £250.00

In this two-day masterclass, students will weave a design supplied by the renowned tapestry artist Barbara Burns, created specifically for weaving a three-dimensional tapestry in the form of a mini-corset. The event will open with an evening presentation on her work by Barbara.

Participants can expect to weave a partial, mini-corset, and learn the techniques to successfully pull warps to shape the corset. They will leave the Masterclass with an understanding of all the steps to develop and create a full size, wearable or mini-corset to specific dimensions. 

Studio activities will be supported by a presentation by Barbara of her experiences with designing and weaving corsets.

Evesham, Worcestershire. 6th - 8th October 2019 (Heallreaf managed)

Barbara Burns is an internationally recognised tapestry artist whose newest figurative tapestries exploring sexuality and exposure are influenced by her experience as a burlesque and belly dancer. You can read more about her and see examples of her work on her web site.

Barbara Burns' visit to the UK is supported through a collaboration between weaversbazaar and Heallreaf, the international tapestry exhibition.
