Shadow to Light: Workshop with Master Textile Artist Helena Hernmarck
Friday, July 27–Sunday, July 29 — 9 a.m.–5 p.m. each day

Helena Hernmarck, our era’s legendary trompe-l’oeil weaver, offers the
rare opportunity to get an insight into her weaving technique in a
three-day workshop that will take place at the American Swedish
Institute in Minneapolis July 27–29, 2012. Hernmarck will explain and
demonstrate her weaving technique, assisted by two or three master
students as well as her use of color and how she uses color blended
“butterflies,” or yarn bundles, to make her creations. Students will
then work under the guidance of Hernmarck to create their own sample
piece that goes from “shadow to light,” as they work on the illusion of a
shadow on their own frame or table loom. Participants will also receive
a take-home handout outlining Hernmarck’s technique. This workshop is
co-sponsored by the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM).
Those interested in participating in “Shadow to Light: Workshop with
Master Textile Artist Helena Hernmarck” are required to complete the
Workshop Application - http://www.asimn.org/ASI/Slojd_files/Shadow%20to%20Light%20Workshop%20Application.pdf
- due to ASI by April 1, 2012. Only intermediate to advanced weavers
will be considered. Applicants will be notified of their application’s
status by April 15, 2012. This workshop costs $495 for ASI and WGM
members and $545 for nonmembers. Students can rent a frame loom for the
workshop for $30, should they need one.

The workshop with Helena Hernmarck is being offered in conjunction with
an exhibit of Hernmarck’s work at the American Swedish Institute. “In
Our Nature: The Tapestries of Helena Hernmarck” will be on display June
30–October 14, 2012. http://www.ASImn.org/ASI/Exhibits.html#hernmarck
