Weaving a Life
with Germaine Koomen, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education
Weaving a Life is a simple, symbolic weaving process suitable for both beginning and experienced weavers. This approach allows one to explore one’s possibilities through creating a series of simple weavings called keyforms. The keyforms – amulet, bowl, doll, belt, mask, sacred bundle, and shawl – are elemental forms common to all cultures throughout the world. They become physical manifestations of personal meaning for the one who creates them. The woven forms hold symbolic significance in themselves, and form a kind of vessel or template for the individual to create a unique and personal experience of a path to self-discovery. In this class you will weave an amulet, if there is enough student interest we will add sessions to weave other keyforms. Registration fee includes all materials.
