Cavandoli 2.0 Workshop Description: Cavandoli is a knotting technique in which double half hitches are knotted in a continuous fashion, with no loose thread or spaces between the knots creating a woven-like tapestry. Traditionally two colors are used and patterns are created by alternating horizontal and vertical double half hitches.

Cavandoli 2.0 will take you beyond these limitations. A series of techniques will be explored to work beyond the two color limitation and to provide you with tools for color control.

With the use of wire armatures, vertical, horizontal and reverse double half hitches, we will create modules like textile pieces. Texture and relief will be explored. The pieces we will create will be planned and structured; they will prepare to make free-form pieces.
