Interwoven: A Textile-Based Online Craft Course

Today I'm excited to introduce to you, Poppytalk contributor, Lisa Solomon's newest project, that she and Katrina Rodabaugh are launching in the new year!  It's an online textile-based craft course they're calling INTERWOVEN which will be focusing on four different textile projects —crochet, soft sculpture, embroidery and quilting— each week from February 4 - March 1, 2013.  I've been wanting to crochet for like ever, so personally I am so looking forward to joining them, care to join me?  Here's more info:

INTERWOVEN:: make : thread : craft : art” is a textile-based online craft course that will guide students in four techniques over four weeks. From February 4-March 1, 2012 each week will focus on a different textile project—crochet, soft sculpture, embroidery, quilting—with a complete step-by-step tutorial to learn the techniques and create a finished project. Throughout the week we will also offer inspiration from other artists using this technique, possibilities for altering this technique, an exclusive interview with a professional artist, and suggestions for further exploration such as materials, tools, resources, or other studio tips. The private website will be available all day, everyday, from the first day of class on February 4 through April 30—this way you can enjoy the information at your own speed after the course has finished on March 1.
In addition to the private online course, participants will also have access to an INTERWOVEN Facebook page and a private Flickr group where they can post their own projects and receive weekly feedback. The course is designed with the beginner crafter and the experienced artist in mind—aiming to offer everyone a supportive creative community, daily inspired prompts, thorough tutorials, personal feedback, insider tips for tools & resources, and inspiration to take these projects to the next level. Artists Lisa Solomon and Katrina Rodabaugh met through their studio blogs several years ago and have been friends on and off-line ever since. They share a love of colorful thread, beautiful fabrics, and using traditional crafting techniques to make contemporary art. This is the first time they have offered an online course.
