Textile Arts: “Kudzu Lampshade”

Deadline to Register: May 11th at 5:00pm

Title: Textile Arts: “Kudzu Lampshade”

Description: Make your own lampshade from kudzu vines! Using whole and split kudzu vines, students will learn the free-form open weave method to create their own unique kudzu lampshade. Beginners welcome!

Instructor: Beth Phillips says “I weave lighting, sculptures and basketry using whole and split Kudzu vines. I also make paper from the leaves, and I recently learned the ancient process of extracting the fiber from the vines to weave cloth and am excitedly pursuing that side of creating with kudzu at present. Images and examples of my more recent work can be seen on my social media pages on FB and IG@kudzumama. With the invasive nature of kudzu such an environmental and ecological issue in the South, I love the opportunity to share all the wonderful uses and products that can be derived from such a maligned vine.”

 Supplies and Attire: All materials and supplies will be provided.

Time:  Saturday, May th (1:00pm-4:00pm)

Tuition: $50.00
