Instructor: Cathryn Amidei
Saturday/Sunday October 20 & 21th, 9:30-4pm
In this course, learn an introduction to the TC2 jacquard loom! The TC2 is a handloom that digitally controls every thread in the warp independently. This workshop will present methods using photoshop to create patterns, imagery and color in the woven matrix on a handloom. As a special event to kick start the opening of our Digital Leaving Lab, Praxis invites instructor Cathryn Amidei to teach this course on a Tc2 shipped to Cleveland from North Carolina.
Cathryn has been studying and weaving Jacquard for 15+ years. She has travelled extensively, studying and teaching on the TC2. She spent a year living in Norway working and walking at Tronrud Engineering Headquarters: the Digital Weaving Norway production facility. She owns a TC2 and provides technical support to Artists and Universities in North America when they purchase the loom and after.
