6-week course. In this class, students will investigate a selection of fiber-based objects in the collection of the Denver Art Museum.

Focusing on notions of off-loom weaving, participants will be encouraged to explore various methods while responding to their own interests. Open to all skill levels. Masks strongly encouraged.
