Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Paper Weaving

Staff Led: Anders Zanichkowsky

Much like printmaking, the process of weaving uses structure, order, and repetition to produce beautiful and unique imagery. We often think of weaving things like cloth, rugs, and baskets, but you can also make weavings from things like drawings, letters and mail, magazines, and wrapping paper? Anders Zanichkowsky will show you how to create both flat and dimensional pieces that combine colors, patterns, textures, and images in unexpected ways using basic hand woven structures. We will practice the basics by weaving together two original drawings that we create for this purpose, to reveal unexpected connections and relationships. Then we will move into some more elaborate ways to weave with any kind of paper you’d like to experiment with.

Suggested Materials

  • Any kind of blank paper (plain or construction)
  • Other interesting papers like magazines, letters, drawings, book pages, etc.
  • Pens, markers, crayons, colors pencils
  • Scissors, or an X-acto blade and cutting mat
  • Tape or glue

Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL] is a low-key drop-in social workshop devoted to staying creative from home. There are no pretensions and newcomers are always welcome, so invite your friends to join! Each Drink & Draw [Virtual] features a new guest artist and a new theme or project that uses pencil, paper, and everyday household supplies. Don’t have a sketchbook? Hosts will help you improvise. Find us on Zoom, a free app for your phone or computer. And of course: BYOB!
