Seeing Double: Overlaying Designs,
Speaker, Laurie Autio
When you look at your towering teenager, do you also see his sweet baby face lurking underneath? Are you fascinated by double exposures in photographs? Inspired by examples of layering pattern in Japanese textiles, we will discuss some ways to superimpose two or more patterns in the same piece. Some of these techniques can be done with pencil and graph paper and the simplest of looms, others are easier with computer drafting, Photoshop, and more complex looms.
