Rag String Vessels with Ilka White
This hands-on workshop begins with string making, then introduces Looping and Coiling as ways to construct vessels from humble rags. Experiment and cross-pollination are central to the process, with approaches to shaping addressed as we go along. These techniques lend themselves to sculptural outcomes, so a plethora of designs and applications tend to suggest themselves the more broadly we think.
Bring your own materials to recycle and discover what riches can come from rags!
